    Hello Glenn i am undertaking a literature review on water recycling in agriculture for a USA organisation( WateReuse Research Foundation). My core argument is that the recycled water is concentrated in urban areas that are usually well removed from suitable agriculture areas. I summarize this view by stating that over 80% (??) of the Australia’s population lives within 100km of the coastline. Is this number correct and if so could you advise me of a published paper/report that supports the number please.

    My thanks…..ted
