Is that water safe to recharge to aquifers?
Groundwater replenishment is where highly treated wastewater undergoes advanced treatment to produce recycled water equivalent of drinking water quality. This water is then recharged to an underground aquifer, where it is ‘banked’ for later use as drinking water.
Water produced by the Groundwater Replenishment Scheme is safe. Water recharged remains in the aquifer, before it is drawn out at another location, treated at a water treatment plant, and added to the water supply scheme.
