Australia Water Report 2015
BMI View: This quarter we have updated and expanded our forecasts across various areas of the watersector. We now cover mains and non mains consumption and extraction, water losses, desalinationproduction and household connections to mains networks. Our new forecasts reflect our overall expectationthat water demand in Australia will continue to rise, putting additional pressures on the dwindlingfreshwater reserves, and stimulating investment in desalination and water treatment and reuseinfrastructure.
Heavily dependent on surface water, Australia's water market is increasingly looking to recycled watersources as droughts intensify and ground water resources dwindle. While new reservoirs are beingconstructed, and large wastewater reuse projects are underway, rising demand for water from mains and nonmains users puts increasing pressures on limited resources. Despite the government's ambitious waterinfrastructure development goals - particularly for desalinated and reclaimed water projects - slow progresssuggests that reservoirs and rain water will continue to account for the majority of water produced over ourforecast period to 2019.
