It has been a century since the first water treatment plant was built in Australia, and it is estimated that we now have more than half of Australia’s total water treatment capacity.
However, the cost of this system has not kept up with the increasing demands of the population.
In fact, over the past decade, we have seen the price of water treatment go up by more than 100 per cent.
With more people and more water systems to manage, this is no longer a sustainable business model.
The new report, Water Treatment Trends, examines the costs of water supply, and offers recommendations for making water safe, efficient and affordable for Australians.
With water treatment in Australia expected to cost $8.5bn by 2050, we look at what is needed to make it a reality.
How to make water safe?
Water treatment is not just a question of money, but also of people.
The Australian Government has set a target of reducing the number of people who die from waterborne illnesses, by 2020.
The report finds that water treatment alone would save more than $100bn over that period.
But there is more to this than just money.
Water treatment systems have to be efficient, so that they are able to handle the water in their system more effectively.
The more efficient they are, the more money can be saved.
Achieving a cost-effective system will require more than just cost savings.
It will require that we make water safer for everyone.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) says the cost-effectiveness of water water treatment to a population of one billion is around $2.1 billion.
But, this figure does not include other costs, such as the health effects of untreated water.
How can water treatment work?
Water treatments are not just about money.
We know from previous research that people need water for survival, but that we also need it to live and drink.
Water that is treated properly has a wide range of health benefits.
It helps to prevent or reduce waterborne infections, including cholera, diphtheria, pneumonia, diarrhoea and urinary tract infections.
In addition, it can protect against disease.
Water also contains nutrients, and water can reduce water pollution.
So, it is not surprising that water that is properly treated can help to reduce water contamination.
But water treatment does not just have to help us live longer.
We need water that has a lot of other health benefits, too.
Water can also help us to manage the impact of climate change.
Climate change is changing the water cycle, affecting the way we drink it, what plants we eat, and how we use it.
It is important that water is treated appropriately to protect our environment.
Water is one of the most important resources in our lives, so it is essential that we do all we can to ensure it is safe to drink and drink well.
The cost of water pollution is a serious problem, and this report looks at how we can help make it less expensive for everyone to drink safe water.
Water pollution is already a serious issue.
It costs Australia $1.2 billion per year in water pollution, and many of the major water systems have not kept pace with the changes.
The study finds that the water that gets into our drinking water system comes from the aquifers that are being depleted.
We can’t solve this problem on our own.
But we can make the water system safer by reducing the pollution that we put into it.
Water and water systems are essential to our well-being.
Our communities need safe drinking water to stay healthy and to protect the health of the community.
It also protects against disease, and helps to maintain the quality of our water supply.
What water treatment systems are available in Australia?
Water is the most common element in our environment, so we need all the water systems that we can find.
Water treatments and storage facilities are in the hands of many local governments, but many more water supply systems are being built.
The largest are in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.
The rest of Australia has about 10 water treatment plants, including those in Victoria, South Australia and Western Tasmania.
There are more than 700 water treatment facilities in Australia.
Where is water from?
The water supply is made up of many different types of sources.
Some sources are treated with water that comes from rainwater, lakes, streams and the Great Barrier Reef.
Others come from surface waters.
For example, there is a significant volume of freshwater in the South Island’s Murray River that is collected and treated for irrigation and irrigation purposes.
The Great Barrier Shield, which protects the Great Southern and the northern parts of the Great Australian Bight, is another example of a water source that is a source of drinking water.
The water that goes through the Great River is also treated for various purposes, including irrigation.
These water sources are all important sources of water for Australia’s population.
