Water supply management
Objective: Provide sustainable water services that enable a healthy, liveable and prosperous Melbourne
Why water supply management is important
Melbourne’s water supplies have traditionally been sourced from protected catchments surrounding the city. A growing population and a projected drying trend in our climate mean that in addition to focusing on using water efficiently, we will also need a broader range of water supply sources.
We have a number of established programs to prevent water losses in our system and help our customers use water efficiently. We are adopting Integrated Water Cycle Management to introduce a broader range of fit for purpose supply solutions that can contribute to cleaner waterways and lower energy use.
