Maximising the use of non-potable water

Our alliance team on the Ovingham Level Crossing Removal Project in Adelaide have partnered with SA Water, The Department for Health and Wellbeing, and Adelaide City Council to maximise the use of recycled water on the project.

The team is using recycled water from the Glenelg to Adelaide Pipeline (GAP), which delivers high-quality treated wastewater to irrigate the Adelaide parklands. To date 3.25 ML of water has been used from the GAP for on-site construction purposes, including stockpile management, soil conditioning and dust suppression.

This strategy, combined with rainwater tanks on site, has meant that 81% of the project’s water requirements have been met with non-potable water. 

Reducing our reliance on potable water across our projects is one way we're reducing our environmental impact.
