|This State and Federal Government funded project provides more than 3.8 billion litres of high quality recycled water annually. In addition to supplying existing customers, the project provides a minimum of 1.3 billion litres each year to irrigate the Adelaide Park Lands.|
The project provides a sustainable long-term solution for watering the Park Lands and presents opportunities for the development of additional recycled water initiatives in the future.
The project contributes to a range of significant environmental benefits including:
- Reduced discharges of treated wastewater to the Gulf St Vincent
- Increasing the annual reuse of treated wastewater from the Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant by more than three times
- Improved health of the River Torrens and quality of the water in Torrens Lake.
