Googong is a new township located on the NSW/ACT border, just 16 kilometres south-east of Canberra, which Mirvac is delivering in partnership with Peet. Setting a new benchmark for environmentally sustainable greenfield communities, the township will feature a dedicated water recycling plant that will be used to help drought-proof Googong, providing recycled water for public green spaces, residential lawns and gardens, and flushing of toilets. The system, which has been developed by Peet and Mirvac and will be operated, monitored and maintained by Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Councilis, is expected to reduce potable water consumption within the community by 60 per cent.
