Climate Resilient Water Sources

Climate Resilient Water Sources allows you to view, download and contribute to data on Australia's alternative water sources including recycled water and desalinated water.

  • National Overview: Visualise data on capacity, production, water sources and use through national, State and Territory filters.
  • Site explorer: Explore sites on an interactive map or table with plant details.
  • Data download: Download the full dataset for further information and analysis.
  • Contribute: Contribute to our developing dataset with information about your facility.

Water sources that are climate resilient are increasingly relied upon to secure Australia's water demands. Whether part of a large centralised supply system or small decentralised schemes, they're playing a vital role in lessening risks of variability in our climate.

Climate Resilient Water Sources aims to increase awareness of the important role climate-resilient water sources play in meeting Australia's water supply needs.

The dataset covers publicly and privately owned and operated desalination and recycled water plants across Australia.

What water information does Climate Resilient Water Sources contain

Climate Resilient Water Sources Overview

Climate Resilient Water Sources add to the national picture of Australia's water resources by providing detailed, plant scale data and information on public and privately owned and operated desalination and recycling across Australia.

The Bureau provides information on water resources to support policy and planning. Our Australian Water Resources Assessment, National Water Account and Urban National Performance Report provide information on surface water, groundwater and alternative water resources - indicating that around 80 percent of our water is derived from surface water resources.

Climate Resilient Water Sources has been jointly developed by the Bureau of Meteorology, the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence, the National Centre for Excellence in Desalination and the CSIRO.

The project partners acknowledge the financial support of the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence and the National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia which are funded by the Australian Government through the National Urban Water and Desalination Plan.
