The Northern Water Supply Project is a proposed desalination project. The project would supply water to the far north and Upper Spencer Gulf areas of South Australia. The scope of the works currently being investigated includes:
- a seawater desalination plant (up to 260 Megalitres/day) in the Upper Spencer Gulf
- a 450km water pipeline to the far north of South Australia
- water storage and pumping stations, and
- other ancillary infrastructure.
A funding decision is expected by the second quarter of 2023.
