We are reviewing our current Urban Water Strategy and compiling the next Urban Water Strategy for 2022. 

The Strategy is a long-term planning tool to inform our actions that secure our water future over the next 50 years.  

Our approach to urban water management links all aspects of the water cycle. It identifies better ways to service customers while maintaining a sustainable future. 

We review this Strategy every five years, which involves assessing our plans against a number of factors including climate change and population growth.

Our Strategy will help us balance the supply of water with the demand of our region's water needs.


Engaging with our communities

In the lead up to the 2022 Urban Water Strategy, we will evaluate what challenges and opportunities we have available.

We will consult and engage our key stakeholders, including Traditional Owners and community members. We want to understand the best mix of actions to ensure sustainable water and wastewater services into the future. 

Our region includes 49 towns across 16,500 square kilometres in North Central Victoria, supplied by nine separate water supplies.

We plan to tailor our Urban Water Strategy initiatives to 16 separate areas within our region.

You can be involved in planning our water future by joining the conversation here. 



The next Urban Water Strategy is due March 2022 under the Statement of Obligations issued under section 41 of the Water Industry Act 1994.   

The initiatives identified in the Urban Water Strategy will contribute to the next pricing submission. A five-yearly submission made to the Essential Service Commission that sets pricing and capital expenditure.
