1. Laratinga Wetlands is one of the most successful and diverse artificial wetlands in Australia, and the only one of its kind in South Australia. These 12ha Wetlands are lined by reeds that absorb nutrients from the water (nitrogen and phosphorus) and house many frogs!
2. Once the water has travelled through the wetlands and been naturally filtered, it has reached a high quality standard for recycled water, that can be used for watering gardens, flushing toilets, industry, irrigating parks and sports grounds, and growing industries food crops.
3. The wetlands hold an average of 100 megalitres of water at any given time.
4. The Wetlands save you money! Reused water from the plant is used to irrigate local parks and reserves - saving the Council money (and therefore the ratepayers too!). Water from Laratinga Wetlands is sold to local market gardeners to grow vegetables and used in local industry for dust suppression on work sites. All this takes pressure off the state’s struggling water supplies and helps to keep the cost of water down.
5. The Laratinga Wetlands are full of walking trails, picnic areas, and places to sit and watch the natural wildlife, relax and unwind.
