WA South West Heads of Water Panel Discussion & Networking

WA South West Heads of Water Panel Discussion & Networking
Join us in Bunbury for a facilitated panel discussion with Heads of Water in the South West who will be discussing “Water resilience and liveability in the South West” followed by a networking opportunity.

Rainfall across the South West of WA has declined over the past three decades. Salt water intrusion has also had a major impact on balance sheets of local government and water utilities owning and managing water infrastructure in the region. The region has experienced increasing urban growth, deteriorating water quality and reduced access to ground and surface water sources. All of these factors have driven the WA water industry's long-term strategy to meet community liveability expectations whilst providing growth opportunities and employment. 

Today's Heads of Water are required to take a holistic approach to urban and rural water management and to technically apply an integrated approach that requires collaboration across state and local government as well as water service providers, developers and customers.
