By Nick Fazio, BBC NewsA new sewage treatment plant in Melbourne is the biggest in the country, and has a capacity to treat up to 500,000 litres of waste every day.
A waste water treatment plant is a large system of pipes that collects, distributes and stores sewage.
It is also known as a recycling plant, and is usually a central part of a city’s sewer system.
The waste water system was initially built in the 1970s as part of the city’s sewage treatment plan.
Since then, Melbourne has had to pay to maintain it, and in 2013 the city lost $8.5 million because of it.
But the city is now trying to recoup some of that money, which will be invested into a new wastewater treatment plant.
Currently, there are two large sewage treatment plants in Melbourne.
Victoria has the largest amount of wastewater treatment facilities in the world, with about 1.2 million tonnes of waste being treated each year.
In Melbourne, there is a total of 542 sewage treatment sites, with the Wastewater Treatment Plant being the largest.
There are also five wastewater treatment plants at the northern end of the Melbourne CBD.
However, there has been a recent drop in the amount of waste that is being treated in the northern part of Melbourne, with some parts of the CBD being considered the most efficient.
For the past few years, there have been a number of initiatives in Melbourne to improve waste water quality.
More than 100,000 tonnes of plastic, glass, cardboard, plastic bags and other materials are collected and treated in Victoria each year, and a waste water facility can also help reduce the amount plastic and other waste is released into the atmosphere.
Last year, the city launched a pilot project to provide a waste flow monitoring system to help manage waste and pollution.
Another major project, known as the City of Melbourne Waste Management Plan, was launched in April this year.
It aims to reduce the number of residential sewage treatment facilities and improve the quality of water used in residential buildings and the environment.
Melbourne has been one of the most active cities in Australia in dealing with sewage, with an average of 1.8 million tonnes per year being treated by the sewage treatment facility.
According to the city, it has received more than $9 million in public funding since the program began in 2016.
This includes $4.6 million from the Victorian Government’s Infrastructure Fund, and another $2.5m from the City’s Water and Wastewater Fund.
