Abstract

Adelaide will need to diversify and integrate its water sources to ensure its future water security. The present research found that stormwater and groundwater were more acceptable supply alternatives than recycled waste water and desalinated water. Further, community education markedly changed opinions of water sources and transparent processes and trust in the treatment and monitoring may be more important than the choice of water sources.
