Potential for more than 5000 Jobs as Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme Progresses

A proposal to expand the use of recycled water for primary production in the Northern Adelaide Plains suggests there is the potential to create more than 5000 jobs.

The proposal was developed by a consortium of companies after SA Water called for Expressions of Interest to use an additional 20 gigalitres of recycled water from the Bolivar Waste Water Treatment Plant as part of the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme.

The State Government, through SA Water, will now progress the consortium’s proposal to the feasibility stage and examine the potential economic and employment benefits of the proposal, with interim results expected by the end of 2016.

The Water Industry Alliance (WIA) is working closing with the Government to ensure WIA members are involved in the initiative and receive opportunities as a result.

Smart Specialisation Clusters

The South Australian water industry has a number of areas where it has excelled and is now one of the global leaders. Some of these areas have been identified and specialisation groups have been formed to foster the continued leadership of the technologies and the companies, government departments and research & training institutions that drive them forward.

The WIA facilitates two globally leading smart specialisation groups, MAR Hub and WaRDA, cluster groups who hold expertise in managed aquifer recharge and wastewater for regional and decentralised applications.
