WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2017

Water management

Since 2014, Curragh has reduced the usage of its river water allocation by almost one-third. This has been achieved through greater water efficiencies, innovation, additional infrastructure and increased use of recycled mine water. As a result, Curragh did not use nearly 1,000 megalitres of allocated Mackenzie River water in 2017, and this was subsequently made available to other sectors within the community.

Sustainable water use and water management remains a key part of Curragh’s environmental program.
