Overview

The water efficiency specialist network aims to lead the national conversation on water efficiency.

We believe that reduced water wastage is key to keeping water affordable for all users and providing resilient water systems for all communities. Our position is that water efficiency is not just a crisis response, but that maximising the utility of available water resources should be part of any approach to water planning or management that seeks to be prudent from an engineering, economic, environmental or governance perspective.  

Objectives:
  • To collaboratively advance the conversation on the best-practice approaches to planning and implementation of water efficiency
  • To demonstrate and represent the case for investment in water efficiency to the community, water utilities and policy makers 
  • To highlight how optimal outcomes for local communities can converge with good business outcomes for the water industry
  • To advocate for water efficiency to be effectively embedded in all urban water planning, land use planning, building and development requirements
