Brief description In consultation with industry and government, this project is developing an economic framework to assess non-potable recycled water schemes, including residential, industrial, municipal and agricultural schemes. The two most prominent barriers to the implementation of these schemes have been the relative cost of recycled water compared to other water sources and the commercial risk, in particular demand risk. Marsden Jacob Associates (MJA) carried out a choice modelling study of Sydney households to estimate the economic value they place on the indirect benefits of recycled water.
