NSW, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia are leading the world in the establishment of sustainable water communities.
Public water authorities and local councils are no longer the only option when it comes to water servicing
While NSW has specific legislation to license and regulate water utilities, other States are quickly moving ahead to enable water innovation and sustainability.
Centralised water servicing can be costly and slow. In new growth areas, this infrastructure often costs double an alternate sustainable water utility solution and does not embrace new technologies and approaches to water servicing, such as Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM).
Localised approaches to water servicing are the future - they reduce capital infrastructure costs, save up to 70 per cent of drinking water, reuse a waste resource and enable communities to be more self-sufficient.
