10.8 Managed aquifer recharge – other schemes

Supporting information

The volume of water injected into aquifers via a managed aquifer recharge scheme could not be quantified in a way that is complete, neutral and free from material error for the 2012–13 year.

Local councils in the Adelaide region harvest and treat stormwater through constructed wetlands and storage in aquifers. There are currently eight stormwater harvesting and reuse projects underway in the Adelaide region, with the collective capacity to harvest approximately 8,000 ML of stormwater annually. No information was available on volumes of water injected to groundwater for the 2012–13 year. For further information refer to the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources website.
