Project goal:

Construct Groundwater Replenishment Scheme

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

Stage 1 - 2016 and Expansion - 2019

What's happening?

Construction of Perth's first full-scale Groundwater Replenishment Scheme at the Beenyup facility in Craigie is currently underway and in the final stages of commissioning. This first stage will have the capacity to recharge up to 14 billion litres of water into groundwater supplies each year.

On Thursday 14 July 2016, the State Government announced the expansion of the Groundwater Replenishment Scheme. This will include duplication of the 14 billion litre recycling plant – doubling the scheme's capacity to 28 billion litres each year – and construction of new recharge bores and associated recharge pipeline to the east of Lake Joondalup.

The expansion is expected to be complete within 3 years and, with capacity to recharge 28 billion litres of water into groundwater supplies, will provide a new climate independent water source to boost much needed drinking water supplies.
