Recycled sewerage for Library landscape

Human waste from the new mega-library in Peppermint Grove will be recycled and used on a $1 million landscaped park around the building.

It will be the first time the technology has been used in Australia.

Harvested “brown water” will water the lawns and urine will be treated and added to the irrigation system on the site.

“The plants will love it,” landscape architect Matt Huxtable told the council.
