Over the past decade, driven by a confluence of interrelated factors such as drought, subsidies, and sustainability interests, Australia has seen significant developments in water recycling. However, we have seldom looked back at these investments to see how differently things panned out from what had been initially planned or anticipated, and how the real costs, benefits and risks were balanced and distributed across different stakeholders. Learning from these experiences is essential if effective recycled water investments are to be mad in the future. The Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF), at the University of Technology Sydney has recently completed a two-year national collaborative research project for the Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence aimed at filling this knowledge gap, and enabling the sector to build better business cases.
