Services we offer
Marion Water is the term used for the City of Marion’s recycled non-drinking water that is distributed to our parks, reserves, schools, industry and, in the near future, some new residential sub-divisions. Marion Water is primarily stormwater and native groundwater which is treated to a standard fit for purpose as defined in the National Stormwater Guidelines.
We believe in utilising every drop of rainwater for the greater good. That's why we've constructed a comprehensive pipeline network spanning over 11.5 kilometres, which already irrigates more than 30 council reserves.
We extended our pipeline network in 2023 by an additional 12 kilometres to cover even more areas. Our recycled water pipeline now also reaches 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, cooler and more sustainable future.
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 River Murray Basin Plan.
The four year Marion Water Plan outlines opportunities to expand the Oaklands Stormwater Reuse Scheme and manage our water resources.
