Water

The Adelaide Hills has winter dominant rainfall and provides a vital source of fresh water for Adelaide through a series of reservoirs throughout the Hills catchment area.

As the region has a relatively high rainfall there is a well-developed surface water catchment infrastructure for farming. A large proportion of the region is also fortunate to have good underground water supplies with water quality ranging from “Spring Water” quality in the Mount Lofty region to generally potable water throughout. The entire region has been proclaimed for water use with requirements for licensing of both surface and underground supplies.
