The Urban and Rural Water Supply Strategy outlines how we will manage water security to provide water services in our towns and cities now and into the future. Urban Water Strategies have a long-term outlook of 50 years.
As GWMWater has both urban and rural responsibilities, the strategy considers both urban and rural pipeline supplied customers in each of our five water supply systems - Murray, Goulburne, Grampians, Pyrenees and Eastern Grampians and Groundwater towns.
The strategy meets requirement 6-A of the Statement of Obligations (General) issued to all water corporations and has been produced in accordance with DELWP Urban Water Strategy Development Guidelines.
