The need for water recycling is vital in Queensland.

As one of Australia's most arid states, and producing 14% of the country's agriculture, Queensland has an ongoing need for precise water management and water recycling. Economic sectors most impacted by the need for water recycling are agriculture, outback tourism and minerals.

Consider the domestic application of water for communities. The average Australian uses more than 200 litres of water daily, according to environmental protection figures. If that seems high, consider the domestic applications in which we use water daily:

  • The average shower consumes 100-150 litres of water

  • A toilet uses about 15 litres of water per person, per day

  • Washing machines use an average of 50-70 litres per load

  • The kitchen sink takes about 40 litres a day for preparing food and washing.

 Consider water's agricultural and commercial applications. The quantity of water required to successfully run a commercial farm is incredible. Crops and  animals (pigs, chickens, cows and sheep) all need water to stay alive. Animals need food to stay alive, which requires water to grow it. Water is also used in the transition from animal to meat products, and in cooling systems to keep meat fresh.

Crops require water for spreading fertilizers and pesticides, which result in greater crop yields. Water is used for irrigation. Studies show that by using drip irrigation, farmers can conserve up to 60% of the water it would normally take to irrigate a crop. It requires about:

  • 100 litres of water to produce one ear of corn

  • 300 litres to produce one egg

  • 900 litres to produce one loaf of bread

  • 3000 litres to grow a bushel of wheat.

  • 6000-7000 litres to produce one pound of beef.

Queensland's economy has been undergoing structural diversification and evolution over the past decade. It has been transitioning from a resources-based economy to a diversified economy with various growth drivers. Although the resources sector will continue to play a big role in contributing to Queensland's economy over coming decades, there's a dominant shift towards activity and employment-based services (in particular health, education, professional services and tourism-related industries).

Queensland's industries areas (and the supply chains that support them) have different needs for infrastructure spending. For example, coastal regions that attract international tourism require marine, preservation and aviation infrastructure spending. Agricultural areas and resource production need access to resources (water, energy, gas) and to domestic and international export markets through effective integrated supply chains.

These vital sectors impact on daily essentials for Queenslanders, such as access to food and energy, and the availability of jobs.
