Water Harvesting Research at the Wetland

A number of water reuse and research studies have been undertaken to utilise captured stormwater for irrigation at the School and surrounding areas.

The CSIRO has undertaken aquifer storage and recovery trails in the tightly packed sand aquifers beneath Urrbrae Wetland. Problems were encountered with low injection and recovery rates.

A report in 2010 identified the possibility of harvesting 167-182 million litres of water each year. Recommendations included further water treatment and modifications to the wetland facility, along with aquifer storage and recovery trials.
