Hahndorf recycled water scheme

As part of our work to protect and enhance the environment, we are currently exploring options for use of recycled water from our Hahndorf Wastewater Treatment Plant. We are interested to hear from people in the Hahndorf area who would be keen to have access for appropriate use of recycled water.

We already recycle about 30 per cent of water from our wastewater treatment plants in Adelaide. This water is used to irrigate parks and gardens, crops and for washing cars and flushing toilets.

The current recycled water quality at Hahndorf offers opportunities for:

  • open space irrigation (such as grassed areas)
  • some food crop irrigation (trees and vines)
  • woodlot irrigation
  • ornamental trees and nurseries.

During this investigation period, we are also open to discussion with people who would need a higher quality of recycled water to meet their needs.

Hahndorf Wastewater Treatment Plant is capable of supplying approximately 300ML (300 million litres) of recycled water each year and any reuse scheme would likely be operational by June 2024.

Take our two-minute survey below to express your interest and suggest your ideas. This opportunity isn’t limited to a single customer and could provide a sustainable benefit to a number of users depending on location and use.

To join the conversation using the survey, you need to register with Water Talks. You can also contact Senior Stakeholder Engagement Adviser Aaron Glossop on 7424 3195 or by email at aaron.glossop@sawater.com.au.
