Following the conclusion of a successful Groundwater Replenishment Trial, the Water Corporation is proposing to implement a 14 gigalitre per annum groundwater replenishment scheme (GWRS) as a climate independent water source for Perth, Western Australia.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
