Water Conservation

Committed to the efficient use of this precious natural resource.

Parafield Airport continues to shift from water conservation to smart water use, in preparation for potentially dryer times ahead.

Stormwater harvested by the City of Salisbury from local drains and treated in a series of wetlands on Parafield Airport has been a supplementary source of non-potable water to off- and on- airport facilities and residential areas for several years. Recycled water from the City’s stormwater harvesting scheme has been used to irrigate the community sporting grounds at Parafield Airport since 2013.

Water Conservation Guidelines and Landscape Guidelines have been developed for tenants and opportunities for the capture of water are identified by Parafield Airport through the building activity approval process. Features include rainwater tanks, stormwater harvesting schemes and drought-tolerant landscaping.
