Hear about latest developments in water recycling, best practices in water reuse, future of Potable reuse, stormwater management, innovative technologies& applications

DAY ONE | 15TH OCTOBER 2019

Stuart Khan, Professor Of Civil & Environmental Engineering,
UNSW

Outline the key findings of the white paper on sustainable hydrogen and what it means for the water industry and other sectors such as transportation. The paper is a cross-sector and collaborative effort between water, power, transport, energy and strategic consulting at Jacobs by national and international teams. The paper gives new and profound insights into the future role of recycled water and water utilities in a sustainable hydrogen future. There are major opportunities to decarbonise operations, create new
revenue streams, use recycled water and forever change energy consumption in treatment plants. Other deep insights that could not fit into the paper are to be highlighted. Many of these are to do with cities of the future and
circular economy.

  • Over a 50 year period, Salisbury, South Australia, expanded from
    4160 to over 140,000 people,
  • Early subdivisional planning of the expanding city included the
    management of stormwater
  • Stormwater and groundwater were integrated with use of wetlands
    and managed aquifer recharge.
  • Local and other governments contributed with developers and
    industry to build the infrastructure including a link main joining the
    managed aquifer recharge locations.
  • The City of Salisbury established a commercial business with over
    500 external customers, supplying recycled water for non-potable
    amenity and industrial use.
  • Research has shown that with little additional water treatment,
    water originally treated through wetlands, and aquifer storage
    could be safely withdrawn for a range of uses including as a
    potential potable water source.

  • Groundwater replenishment is part of Water Corporation’s long-term
    plan to secure water supplies
  • Water Corporation carried out a three year trial from 2010-2012 and
    was a success
  • Stage 1 of the full scale scheme is completed and can recharge up to
    14 billion litres a year
  • Expansion of the scheme is currently underway to increase capacity
    to 28 billion litres
  • Approval for the expansion of the scheme expected late 2019
