Katanning Saleyards Water Harvesting and Stormwater Reuse

Client : Shire of Katanning

The new Katanning Regional Sheep Saleyards facility will be a state of the art facility.  Water harvesting and efficiency is a priority and the facility aims to be self-sufficient in terms of water supply without the need for an external supply. To assess the capacity of the site to provide sufficient water for its own needs, and determine the sizing key infrastructure, a detailed water balance model for the site was developed by Hyd2o.

The developed model was fully interactive enabling the assessment of scenarios and sensitivity with ease. This approach assisted toward the selection of an optimal water supply and stormwater storage configuration reflective of the opportunities, constraints, and design requirements of the site.
