Managing water resources sustainably

Water is vital to our communities, industries and nature. With future declines in rainfall and seasonal reliability expected, balancing our competing water needs will become harder.

We want to be world leaders in how we manage and provide water resources for all water users. This includes being innovative in how we retain water in the landscape, optimise water efficiency and productivity from commercial use, and diversify water sources such as reusing storm and wastewater.

Our role:

  • Deliver water resource planning to meet ecological, economic, cultural and social needs.
  • Improve on-ground management of our water resources.
  • Build understanding of our water resources.

What we achieved in 2020-21
