Century City Water fact sheet

Century City uses only treated effluent for irrigation

The original developers of Century City laid a pipeline from Potsdam Waste Water Works to Century City at the start of the development 20 years ago and so Century City is in the enviable position of having access to treated effluent which is used for all irrigation of common areas at Century City and also for each of the different residential and commercial complexes in the precinct.

One of the joys of living in Century City is the easy access one has to some very scenic walks.
