City of Playford
The City of Playford recognises the vital role that water plays in our community, as well as the need to reduce our reliance on the River Murray. We are investing significantly in innovative stormwater harvesting projects to ensure a long-term supply of recycled water for Council operations and other users.
Waterproofing Northern Adelaide (WNA) is a joint project to improve urban water management in Adelaide’s northern region. The Cities of Playford, Salisbury and Tea Tree Gully are working together with the help of a $41.8 million grant from the Australian Government’s Water Smart Australia program as well as State Government, the Natural Resource Management board and private partners.
In the City of Playford, Waterproofing Northern Adelaide will help provide up to 80 per cent of our water needs for irrigation. Key projects include developing major wetland sites and associated aquifer storage and recovery facilities at Munno Para West, Andrews Farm, Andrews Farm South, and Adams Creek, along with a separate network of community bores adjacent to irrigation sites to extract water from the aquifer.
Shower Head exchange
In October 2009, Council jointly participated with SA Water to provide residents with the opportunity to exchange their existing shower heads with low flow shower heads and shower timers. This was an extremely popular program with hundreds of residents taking part.
