YOUR WATER EFFICIENCY SPECIALIST NETWORK
This network aims to lead the national conversation on water efficiency. The committee is guided by the knowledge that reduced water wastage is key to keeping water affordable for all users and providing resilient water systems for all communities. The networks 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.
