Marion Water

Welcome to Marion Water - the innovative stormwater harvesting scheme by the City of Marion.

We believe in utilising every drop of rainwater for the greater good. That's why we've created a comprehensive pipeline network spanning over 11.5 kilometres, which already irrigates more than 30 council reserves.

But we're not stopping there. We're excited to announce that we're extending our pipeline network by an additional 14 kilometres to cover even more areas. Our recycled water pipeline will now also reach Flinders University, the Women's Memorial Playing Fields, the Seacliff area and more.

With Marion Water, we're committed to making the most of our natural resources and promoting sustainable living. Our stormwater harvesting scheme is not just a means of irrigation but a way of building a greener and more sustainable future.

How much water will be processed?

Marion Water will process at least 250 megalitres (ML) of recycled stormwater on average every year and will generate 143.49 ML of water recovery towards the 450 gigalitres (GL) of efficiency measures under the Basin Plan.

How is the project being funded?

The project is valued at $5.67 million and is being funded by the City of Marion with a $1.739 million grant from the Federal Government under the Off Farm Efficiency Measures Program.

This project will substitute the current River Murray water used for open space irrigation in the City of Marion council area with treated stormwater from the existing Council owned stormwater harvesting scheme at Oaklands Park.
