industry news water APRIL 2012 37 will be distributed utilising three distribution pumping stations located at Mawson Lakes, Para Hills and Walkley Heights. An additional 20km of reticulation in Council’s citywide purple pipe network will supply additional recycled stormwater to the community, industry and schools. • Salisbury Stormwater Harvesting Project Commenced in 2009 and due for completion by June 2012, the completed scheme will harvest up to 6.3GL of stormwater per year that is currently discharged to the Gulf St Vincent. Harvested stormwater will be treated and stored for reuse and distribution in the urban areas of the City of Salisbury. The scheme will utilise the existing Whites Road Wetlands to harvest and treat captured stormwater from the Little Para River. Stormwater from the Helps Road Drain catchment will be diverted to a new biofiltration treatment facility located at Jobson Road. Cleansed stormwater from both the Whites Road Wetland and Jobson Road treatment facility will be diverted to a new aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) and distribution facility located on a Council reserve at Globe Derby. Harvested and cleansed stormwater will be stored using conventional ASR practices. Water stored in six T2 wells will contribute towards recharging the depleted T2 Northern Adelaide Plans groundwater system. Recycled stormwater will be utilised for non-potable purposes in the urban area of the City of Salisbury and will be supplied via an additional 15kms of distribution mains connected to the existing distribution network. This water will be utilised for community facilities, schools, and industrial and commercial users, and will go a long way towards enhancing the urban environment with wetlands, irrigated landscapes and recreational areas. Both projects are supported by the Australian Government’s Water for the Future initiative through the National Urban Water and Desalination Plan, the State Government’s Water for Good Plan and the City of Salisbury.
