The Water Industry Alliance has developed two clusters specialising in clean water technologies.

Wastewater for Regional and Decentralised Applications (WaRDA)

WaRDA brings together a cluster of leading companies and experts within Government who are jointly already leading the way in Wastewater for Regional and Decentralised Applications for South Australia and beyond.

As industry leaders in the planning, design, construction, operation, monitoring and maintenance of wastewater treatment plants for small communities, WaRDA is furthering the opportunity to access global markets, work internationally and provide expertise across the globe, positioning South Australia as a globally recognised hub of expertise in the field of regional and decentralised wastewater management systems.


Managed Aquifer Recharge (MARHub)

MAR Hub is a smart specialisation cluster composed of South Australian companies, research & training institutions and experts within Government leading the way in Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR).

South Australia, through the expertise of MAR Hub participants, has earned global recognition for the entire MAR process, from research and conceptualisation to successful implementation of MAR with a range of aquifers, water sources and other constraints. MAR Hub looks to leverage its leading skills for the global market, furthering the opportunity to work internationally and provide expertise around the world.
