Resilience: How to Know When We Have Done Enough to Secure Our Water Future?
NSW is experiencing dramatic climatic conditions that pose significant challenges for our utilities, governments, and councils in managing our water and wastewater services. Regional towns and cities face water security and quality challenges, exacerbated by increasing demand driven by population growth and urbanisation.
How will we know if we have done enough to future proof our water infrastructure for the generations to come? Have we learned from our past mistakes? Have we struck the right balance between being reactive and pro-active in adapting to our unpredictable climate? How do we become more resilient?
