Water for Industry

In this research theme, techniques are being developed to promote equitable water sharing in multi-use catchments and in remote regions of the State.

The objective is to develop sustainable water management practices for communities and industries that are heavily reliant on safe and secure water supplies such as food, wine, forestry and mining.

Research projects have concentrated on a number of issues including:

  • the characterisation of regional water resources
  • the identification of community and industry water needs
  • environmental water requirements
  • cultural values associated with water

There are two major areas of investment under this theme:

  1. Water Allocation Planning and Water Quality Improvement
  2. Mining and Outback Water

In partnership with the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence, the Goyder Institute is also investigating new opportunities to reuse treated wastewater for irrigation to support effective and efficient use of our water resources to underpin a productive agricultural industry.

This research has produced a series of reports, publications and research materials:
