The issue of water supply has come to the fore during the past decade as the country reeled under one of the deepest and most protracted droughts in history, the Millennium drought. The lack of rainfall challenged a water supply industry that has historically depended on rainwater from large catchments. As dam levels dropped, interest in the augmentation of water supply grew, with governments exploring measures to improve water security. The focus has been on techniques for recovering usable water from salt water, wastewater and stormwater, and this has contributed to industry revenue growth.
