'''Mawson Lakes''' is a [[List of Adelaide suburbs|suburb]] and new residential development in the [[City of Salisbury]], [[Adelaide]], with the first land being released in 1998. It has a census area population of 5,246 people. The suburb is located in the northern suburbs of [[Adelaide]] around 12&nbsp;km north of the [[City of Adelaide|Central business district]]. Much of the suburb was previously known as '''The Levels''', and was a non-residential area, housing a campus of the [[University of South Australia]] and [[Technology Park Adelaide]].
 
 
== History ==
 
 
The residential development grew out of the South Australian Government's plans for a [[Multifunction Polis]] (or MFP), which was designed to be a modern high-tech community of the future. After the plans for the MFP fell out of favour, the site was taken on by the property developer Delfin (now [[Lend Lease Communities]]).
 
 
Today, it includes Technology Park, the Mawson Lakes campus of the [[University of South Australia]], [[Endeavour College]], as well as growing residential and commercial zones. It also contains the public transport hub [[Mawson Interchange]], which is expected to become one of the five busiest stations in Adelaide.
 
 
On October 9, 2007, a Nazi Communist group invaded Mawson Lakes, taking over the local high school, Endeavour College.
 
Fortunately, 3 under-cover police officers, Mark Slaven, Bryce Perser and Asia Ho got all the 4 hostage students out without harm, and the Nazi Communists were put under arrest, and are now serving 9 years for conspiring terrorist acts, [[in Adelaide Gaol]].
 
 
The area now occupied by Mawson Lakes was formerly The Levels.
 
 
===Technology Park Adelaide===
 
 
Technology Park Adelaide is Australia's first technology park, having been established in 1982 by the Government of South Australia. It is currently{{when|date=June 2011}} owned and managed by the Government of South Australia's Land Management Corporation.
 
 
The Technology Park Adelaide is a 65 hectare site which allows any organisation with a technological focus to locate there. Over 90 organisations are located at the Park, with the majority of these organisations having a defence focus. The main types of organisations at the Park are classified as Small to Medium Enterprises (SME) however large corporate organisations have a presence in the Park, including [[BAE Systems]], [[Saab Systems]], [[Topcon]], [[Optus]], [[Xtralis]], and [[Raytheon]].
 
 
The Park is located adjacent to the Mawson Lakes project, which is a joint venture between the Land Management Corporation and Delfin Lend Lease.

== Water supply ==
 
 
Mawson Lakes features a dual water supply system, supplying drinking water and recycled water to homes via completely separate mains. The recycled water is sourced from the Bolivar Sewage Treatment plant approximately 8&nbsp;km away and then has stormwater added to it from the Salisbury wetlands before it is treated to Class A standard recycled water for use on gardens, reserves and connected to the toilet of each residence in Mawson Lakes. SA Water provides a comprehensive audit of homes within the area to ensure that cross connection between the recycled water and drinking water does not occur.<ref>[http://www.sawater.com.au SA Water website], under search term "Mawson Lakes".</ref> Guidelines for the use of recycled water are published by the [http://www.epa.sa.gov.au/pdfs/reclaimed.pdf South Australian Environment Protection Authority (EPA)].
 
 
==Mawson Central==
 
 
The central commercial area of Mawson Lakes, situated between Main Street and Garden Terrace, and north of the Promenade is rapidly growing to become a major shopping precinct with a hotel, florist (Flowers Everywhere), two restaurants, three cafes, medical centre, real estate, bargain shop, and [[Woolworths Limited|Woolworths]].

Mawson Lakes is a part of the federal [[division of Makin]], which has been represented by new Labor MP, [[Tony Zappia]] since 2007, and is a part of the state [[electoral district of Port Adelaide]], which has been represented by Labor Minister and former [[Deputy Premier of South Australia|Deputy Premier]] [[Kevin Foley]] since 2002.
 
 
Results shown here are taken from the Mawson Lakes booth for both seats. Although a part of the [[division of Port Adelaide]] which is said to be a 'working class' seat and therefore safe-Labor, Mawson Lakes has a higher number of conservative voters, which explains why the Liberal Party received more first preference votes at this location at the last federal election. Labor went on to win the seat as a whole.
 
 
== Sporting teams ==
 
Mawson Lakes is home to the [[Mawson Lakes Football Club]], the only football club in the area, the Palms Golf Club, and the Mawson Lakes Cricket Club, formerly Elders-UniSA Cricket Club and have played in the area since 1952.
 
 
== Alien Speculation ==
 
Leading Cultural Advisor, <b>Anthong Phunish</b>, says there have been many reports of alien activity in Mawson lakes, and these are his own words "<i>Many aliens have abducted, and planted people in our neighbourhood, to identify an alien intruder, check their foot/feet. The aliens seem to have a blueprint for our human bodies, but one common mistake is only seven toes</i>", keep an eye out on your fellow peoples.
