Northern Adelaide Plains Water Stocktake

June 2015 – February 2016

Client: Goyder Institute for Water Research

Seed was engaged by the Goyder Institute for Water Research to project manage and contribute to the development of the Northern Adelaide Plains Water Stocktake, a 90-day South Australian government project. The purpose of the project was to establish the current and potential water available in the region for supporting agricultural expansion, focussing on aspects of water quantity, quality and cost.

The project involved working with various regional stakeholders to coordinate input into the assessment, including multiple state government agencies, several local councils, SA Water, University of Adelaide, University of South Australia and the CSIRO.

Seed was able to provide the Goyder Institute with a final technical report that represents the best synthesis available on water resources in the region, essential for underpinning future major investment in this region.
