No flow: Gawler opts out of water project
LIGHT Regional Council is streaming
ahead with phase one of its Gawler Water
Reuse Project, but it will receive little as-
sistance from Gawler Council, which will
play no part in the proposal.
At a special meeting in July, Gawler Council
heard the project would no longer be delivered
as a first-phase roll-out in the Gawler area,
with Light Council to pursue the project to be
delivered within its own jurisdiction.
The project is designed to reduce the de-
mand for potable water, reduce the impact of
urban run-off on local waterways and improve
the amenity of community ovals and sports
Gawler Council chief executive Henry Inat
said it was not viable for his council to partici-
pate in the project.
"Council, having considered the status of
the project, acknowledge that given the inabil-
ity of the private sector to pursue the project
as a viable business model, that the Town of
Gawler not participate in the project as it is
currently presented," he said.
"Council acknowledges the possible intent
of the Light Regional Council to pursue an
alternate local project utilising the same Fed-
eral Government funding which, if successful,
may form the basis of a future expanded re-
Once operational, the scheme will imme-
diately provide non-potable water to replace
potable use to a number of public areas in-
cluding eight reserves in Hewett, the Hewett
Primary School oval and Xavier College.
Light Council chief executive Brian Carr
said he was excited about the rolling out of
"This scheme lays the foundation for an ex-
tensive water reuse program to stimulate and
waterproof a premium food and wine industry
in the Barossa and north of the Gawler River,"
In 2012, Light Council obtained a $10.7
million federal grant from the Common-
wealth Government for the project, which
supports investments in desalination, recy-
cling and stormwater harvesting to improve
water supply security.
Light has undertaken an agreement with
Seppeltsfield Wines Pty Ltd, which has been
identified as both a potential customer for
the water harvested through the project and
also as an operator of the infrastructure con-
The company will be involved with the de-
sign and construction of the project through
a loan agreement and will borrow funds from
Light to construct and maintain the infra-

Gawler RSL wants the monument moved,
while a group of local residents want it to
remain in its original location.
Gawler resident Brian Thom, who is also
the town's retiring deputy mayor, said he
was pleased with the meeting's outcome
and hoped the RSL would now consider the
"I'm very pleased that the DAP have re-
fused the shifting. It was all clinical. I'm
very pleased there was no 'argy-bargy' at the
meeting," he said.
"They should back off; I hope the RSL
take up the challenge of erecting a new me-
morial in Pioneer Park instead."
The DAP found the relocation of the
memorial from its current position would
diminish the historical significance of the
local area and voted unanimously against
Of the eight submissions presented at the
meeting, six were in favour of the memorial
remaining in its current position, while two
wanted to see it moved.
In another twist to the saga, a motion
without notice was expected to be presented
to Gawler Council's corporate and commu-
nity services meeting last night.
The motion involved taking steps to
improve the look of the memorial in its
current position, including removing the
bottle-brush shrubbery surrounding it, im-
proving the lighting around the monument
and flag, remediating the 10 alphabetical
letters that have fallen out and improving
the gun in the hands of the digger.
We had a meeting, it was productive
and it was decided that we will continue to
pursue our legal rights. At the present moment
we are (still) discussing the matter, we are
getting advice from various parties and we
will be making a comment in due course.

RESEARCHERS are investigating
the links between wine, where it
is consumed and the emotion that
comes with it to help the Australian
wine industry gain deeper insights
into its products.
A University of Adelaide trial is be-
ing conducted involving 360 wine
consumers sampling specific wines
in different environments, and rating
their emotional response on a specially
devised 'wine emotion scale'.
Participants in the study blind-tasted
four wines in three different settings
-- a restaurant, at home and in a sen-
They rated 19 different emotions
the wines may have prompted, rang-
ing from warm-hearted or nostalgic,
through to tense or irritated, on a scale
of one to nine.
Project leader Dr Sue Bastian said the
study gave researchers "a very good idea
of what consumers like about wine".
"There are characteristics in wines
which may generate negative emotion,
but we also want to understand what
it is about wine which drives positive
emotion," she said.
"We are also looking at how the
wine setting, for example drinking in
a restaurant as opposed to home, im-
pacts the emotions that are stimulated,
as well as how the consumers like the
wines and their perceptions of wine
quality and the price they are prepared
