12.18 Other irrigation water increases
The volume of water reported in the water accounting statements (253 ML) is the volume of water received from community wastewater management systems (CWMS) within the Adelaide region and included:
- 195 ML – the Nuriootpa CWMS delivered 195 ML of recycled water to the Barossa Infrastructure Limited irrigation scheme (BIL). This volume was reported in the BIL annual report 2011.
- 58 ML – the Willunga CWMS delivered 58 ML or recycled water to the Willunga Basin Water Company (WBWC). This volume was provided by the WBWC.
In the National Water Account 2010 the irrigation scheme was reported as part of the water distribution system store (urban water supply system). However, in 2011 the irrigation water supply system has been classified as a separate store. Given these changes, there was no corresponding line item reported in the National Water Account 2010. The restated volume for the comparative year for this item was not reported as these data were unavailable.
