ADELAIDE DESALINATION PLANT PROJECT

Traditionally South Australia has always relied on the River Murray for much of its water. On average 40% of Adelaide’s water supply comes from the River Murray, but in a drought year as much as 90% of the supply may come from this one finite resource. With further population growth, a secure water supply was under serious threat. In 2009, the South Australian Government launched the Water for Good plan . A key component of this plan was a $1.824 billion construction of a desalination plant to secure long-term and climate independent sustainable water supplies for South Australia, and to reduce the State’s reliance on the River Murray and other rain-dependent sources.
