Oaklands Stormwater Reuse Scheme

SITE  Oaklands Road, Oaklands Park SA

CLIENT  |  City of Marion


PROJECT PERIOD  |  2012-2015

The award-wining Oaklands Stormwater Reuse Scheme is an exceptional example of FMG Engineering leading multiple consultant teams to achieve site Masterplan objectives.

The project included a site Masterplan – with consideration to future development, community engagement, statutory approvals, wetland treatment injection for Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR), and 10km of distribution mains to irrigation sites across the City of Marion.

Simultaneously, a functional design was undertaken of the wetland treatment system, harvesting of water from the Sturt Drain, modelling of the ASR bore field and a functional design for the external distribution works. FMG Research completed detailed geotechnical investigations of the site.

FMG Engineering managed the design delivery process including engineering design and documentation of the civil and structural components, coordinating and interfacing the ASR, mechanical and electrical, and external distribution works.
