Managed Acquifer Recharge now operational
The MAR at Ridge Park is now working, it has the potential to divert 60 klitres of water each year from Glen Osmond Creek. While this will reduce the chance of flooding downstream more importantly it will significantly reduce the amount of mains water that Council will need to purchase resulting in significant cost reduction. The first site to be watered using this water is Unley Oval as early as this evening. Water trucks will also be using this water in the near future.
