With key stakeholders including EPA Victoria, Melbourne Water, universities and the Victorian and Federal Governments, we’re involved in the development of policies and programs which contribute to best-practice management of water in the urban environment.
In the development of an integrated and sustainable water management plan for the Murray–Darling Basin we have advocated on behalf of councils.
This included submissions to both the Guide to the proposed Murray-Darling Basin Plan (2010) and the draft Murray-Darling Basin plan (2012).
We also represent local government on the Clearwater Steering Committee. Clearwater is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to accelerate the uptake of sustainable urban water management.
Councils have been assisted by us to develop sustainable water management plans. Although funding has ceased, councils continue to develop and implement similar plans and participate in water saving programs.
