RLCIP PROJECTS OF STRATEGIC SIGNIFICANCE
1. Epping Stormwater Reuse and Energy Efficiency Project
This project entails the systematic recycling of stormwater and upgrade of facilities with energy efficient products at three public ovals located in Epping and Eastwood. The project will involve the installation of rainwater tanks, energy efficient devices and associated infrastructure (i.e. irrigation systems, pipe works, water treatment, electrical systems, solar power, solar hot water, insulation, air conditioning and sensor lighting) at:
∑ Ron Payne Park Woods Street Reserve, North Epping,
∑ Epping Oval, Cnr Norfolk Rd & Somerset St, Epping and
∑ Somerville Oval, 679 Blaxland Rd, Eastwood.
The water harvested will be re-used to irrigate and maintain the ovals in a sustainable manner without reliance on the use of potable water. In addition the oval amenities facilities will be self sufficient in terms of water use and will be retrofitted with water efficient fixtures such as dual flush toilets, low flow shower heads and energy efficient fixtures (i.e. solar power, solar hot water and sensor lighting) to minimise and conserve water and energy consumption.† Alternative sportsgrounds can be considered and the project could be increased by including other grounds if required.†
