South Australia is the driest state, in the driest continent on Earth, so it makes sense that a trail-blazing research institution leading the way in water conservation, reuse, and recycling has emerged here: the SA Water Centre for Water Management and Reuse (CWMR).

Since its establishment in 2004, the CWMR’s research and consulting services have focused on:

  • Water and waste water treatment
  • Water reuse
  • Total water cycle management
  • Water sensitive urban design
  • Environmental biotechnology
  • Water utilisation from the River Murray; and
  • The provision of water services for rural and desert communities.

Postgraduate and research students benefit from the CWMR’s links with industry, government and environmental agencies; and from our top quality research facilities including the Australian Irrigation and Hydraulics Technology Facility, which enables the testing and development of irrigation and hydraulic equipment for the irrigation sector.

Potential students, researchers and research partners are encouraged to contact the SA Water Centre for Water Management and Reuse.
