Victoria's largest underground water recycling facility is located in Yarra Park, directly outside the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

The water plant treats sewage from the local sewerage network and produces more than 180 million litres of Class A recycled water each year.

The water is primarily re-used as irrigation in Yarra Park, as well as for cleaning and toilet flushing at the MCG and at nearby Punt Road Oval. 

As one of the first of its type in Victoria, the recycling facility has been built underground, out of public view, without taking away from valuable surface land use or park amenity.
