Groundwater in the Western Australian grainbelt is a potential resource for on-farm water self sufficiency. However, most groundwater in this environment is saline to some degree, and is often not suitable for livestock or other on-farm uses.

Desalination, the process to remove much of the salt from saline water sources, could produce less-saline water for livestock, crop spraying, horticulture and domestic uses.

This page provides information on desalination – with reverse osmosis (RO) systems – of groundwater on farms in the Western Australian grainbelt.
