Water for Life, the 50-year urban water strategy we developed in collaboration with Greater Western Water, Yarra Valley Water and Melbourne Water, details how we'll manage our water supplies for our customers, community and environment in the face of climate change and a population that’s expected to double by 2070.
Every year we work with our fellow metropolitan water organisations to publish the Annual Water Outlook for Melbourne. This outlines a number of individual and joint industry short and medium-term actions to improve future drought response.
Under the Water Act we’re required to manage water restriction rules under a by-law. Our by-law incorporates four stages of water restrictions and specifies what can and cannot be done when each stage of restriction is in place. If a stage of restriction is in place, it supersedes Permanent Water Rules.
Stormwater is an evolving area of opportunity in the water industry which also presents a number of economic, regulatory, and operational challenges, read how South East Water is managing it.
