Case study

Kalamunda managed aquifer recharge project

8 Oct 2018
Description

Water proofing urban parklands using managed aquifer recharge (MAR).

The Hartfield Park managed aquifer recharge (MAR) project in the Shire of Kalamunda involves recharging an aquifer under controlled conditions to store water for later abstraction for irrigation use. The scheme harvests approximately 30% of high flows (25–50kL/yr) from an existing urban drain, which is then filtered and stored in Leederville aquifer. Water is then available for extraction in the dry season to irrigate the nearby sport and recreation reserve.
