Unity Park SA Biofiltration Scheme
About the project:
Project location: Pooraka, South Australia
Funding recipients: City of Salisbury
Total Australian Government funding: $6,990,000 (GST exclusive)
Water savings: up to 400 ML/yr
This project features the application of small footprint treatment technology (bio-filtration) suitable for urban areas across Australia which do not have the space for major treated areas.
- Construct stormwater harvesting and reuse infrastructure that has the capacity to reduce potable water demands by up to 400 megalitres per year (ML/yr) by replacing mains water supply with treated stormwater in fit-for-purpose uses such as irrigation of parks and gardens.
- Promote the sustainable use of alternative water supplies in the Adelaide urban environment.
The project is due for completion by October 2013.
