Waterproofing the South

A major stormwater use project, ‘Waterproofing the South’ in the City of Onkaparinga, is well underway with stormwater across the south being harvested, treated and stored in aquifers for reuse in irrigation.

'Waterproofing the South’ captures and treats up to 4 billion litres of stormwater from five local water reuse schemes.

The $55 million project created wetlands along: Brodie Road, Morphett Vale; Madeira Drive, Woodcroft; Dalkeith Road, Seaford Rise; Byards Road, Reynella East; Hart Road, Aldinga Beach; a pond at Candy Road, Happy Valley; and storage at Wilfred Taylor Reserve, Morphett Vale.
