Recycled water being wasted - could be helping feed Australia

A plan to use recycled water, which currently runs out to sea, could double the production of food in Australia's salad bowl, avoiding future vegetable imports by shoring up domestic supply.

Key points:

  • The Lockyer Valley Somerset Water Collaborative aims to unlock recycled water to grow more vegetables

  • Recycled water is currently pumped out to sea but could play an important role in securing south-east Queensland's water

  • The Queensland government is yet to make a decision on whether it will fund the plan
