Pipeline to the Sea
The objective of this feasibility report is to establish the feasibility of a pipeline/channel delivery system that would efficiently and effectively dispose of saline groundwater from the Stockyard Plain Disposal Basin in the Riverland Region of South Australia to the sea.
The key conclusion of this feasibility study is that a pipeline to the sea may have some promise in the longer term when or if the capacity of the existing basins is exceeded. This report has only been prepared to inform discussion around possible disposal alternatives. Any decision to build such a pipeline at some point in the future would require more detailed engineering and ecological assessments followed by an extensive consultation and approval process.
