Stormwater harvesting, treatment and subsequent storage within an aquifer and distribution to western Adelaide for recycled water (non-potable) reuse.

The project will result in sound water management and will treat and inject up to 2,400ML of stormwater each year. The recycled water is now used for irrigation and for flushing toilets, watering gardens, washing cars and paving, and filling ornamental ponds and water features.
