Waterproofing Eastern Adelaide stormwater reuse scheme
This is an Eastern Region Alliance initiative. The new infrastructure captures stormwater in 4 reserves located in Tusmore, Mahogany, Felixstow, and Athelstone, and treats it to a non-potable water grade for irrigating approximately 50 parks and reserves. The stormwater is retained in basins, creeks and rivers and larger pollutants are removed. It is injected into Aquifer Storage Reuse (ASR) sites, the water runs through new wetlands and biofilters, and is disinfected using ultraviolet rays. The water is then extracted and distributed via a pipe network to demand areas.
GO was selected to work in partnership with Walbridge Gilbert Aztec to design and construct the mechanical, electrical, and control components, including: stormwater extraction structures, gross pollutant removal devices, extraction, injection and reticulation pump stations, screen filters, UV disinfection units, bore heads and shelters, 3 buildings, concrete tanks, power supplies, switchboards and communication systems.
