Pine View Station

180km from Broken Hill

Rowater’s custom designed and constructed reverse osmosis system converts high salinity bore water into drinking water for organic farming.

The problem

Convert high salinity bore water (3,500 mg/L) into drinking water for the homestead, workers, cattle and sheep as not enough rain water was available.

The solution

In 1999 Mark purchased a 10,000 litre a day RO solution from Rowater, which was later upgraded to 15,000 litre a day. The RO equipment operates at low recovery so the brine is still suitable for stock drinking. In this way no water was wasted.

Current status

The system worked so well that Mark referred Rowater to neighboring Border Downs Station. Twenty years on and Mark has recently purchased a larger 25,000 litre a day RO plant to provide greater quantities of water, supplementing the 15,000 litre a day plant, which is still in operation.
