Urban water strategy

The Urban Water Strategy is a 50-year plan that outlines the actions required to manage demand for, and ensure sufficient supplies of, drinking water across our service region.

The Urban Water Strategy replaces the Water Supply Demand Strategy 2012–2062. It is revisited every five years in response to the changing water outlook and the variable nature of population growth and development.

We are partnering with our community and regional leaders to design a new water future for our region, through the Water for our Future program. The results of this comprehensive engagement initiative will inform the development of the next urban water strategy, due for release in 2022.

Annual Water Outlook

Each year ahead of summer we also publish our Annual Water Outlook: a high-level overview of our supply systems’ capacity to provide sufficient water security in the short-term (looking ahead two years).
