Treated stormwater and native groundwater treated to a standard fit for purpose.
Non-drinking water in the City of Salisbury is called ‘Salisbury Water’ and is a mix of treated stormwater and native groundwater which is used to irrigate parks, reserves, and schools. It is also used in industry and for toilet/garden use in some new residential developments. Collection, storage and distribution of the water uses constructed wetlands, managed aquifer recharge (MAR) and over 150km of ‘purple pipe’ distribution network across the city.
