Goyder Institute project MARSUO wins the National Stormwater Excellence Award for Research and Innovation

17/10/2014

On Thursday, 15th October,  the Goyder Institute's Managed Aquifer Recharge Stormwater Use Options (MARSUO) research project was awarded the National Award for Excellence in Research and Innovation by Stormwater Australia.

This follows the MARSUO project receiving the South Australian award for the same category in August, progressing it to the National Awards, announced at the Awards Dinner during Stormwater Australia's National Conference.  The National Awards included a field of eight outstanding finalists for the category from around Australia.

In selecting the project as the winning submissions,  the judges acknowledged the MARSUO project clearly identified and addressed knowledge gaps in the sustainable use and management of stormwater; involved meaningful collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders; and demonstrated excellence in consideration of economic, environmental and social factors.

The Goyder Institute for Water Research partnered with the National Water Commission and CSIRO, together with the City of Salisbury in Adelaide, Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board, SA Water Corporation, the former United Water International, University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia, to investigate using aquifers to harvest and treat stormwater for a range of urban water uses.  The MARSUO project was a 31/2 year project with the objectives of developing methods to assess the public safety, public acceptance and economics factors of stormwater via manager aquifer recharge.
