EN22: Total recycling and reuse of water
- None set
Performance 2005-06 and trends
There is no measurement of volumes of water recycled and reused at Parks sites, so it is not possible to report these volumes. Recycling takes place on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands and at Uluru.
On the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, greywater irrigation systems have been installed in staff houses.
A sprinkler system is used at Uluru to dispose of low-grade effluent.
Norfolk does not recycle water but the botanic garden there only uses water captured from the roof of the garden’s buildings and park offices.
There is no water recycling or reuse at the ANBG.
Booderee Botanic Gardens (BBG) collects rainwater in a large tank for fire fighting purposes and to augment mains supply. BBG also has rock-lined open channel drains that direct runoff into Lake McKenzie, which is the BBG irrigation source. Booderee has investigated rainwater tanks on toilets but this is not financially viable at this stage due to the quantity of water required. The Jervis Bay Territory sewage system (Booderee) uses wastewater for watering the Cresswell golf course.
