Planning for Water Infrastructure in Victoria

Tabled: 9 April 2008

Overview

Victoria's prosperity and attractiveness as a place to live, work and do business depend on a secure water supply for residents, businesses, farms and the environment. In November 2007, following ten years of drought, Victoria's water storages were filled to only 26.6 per cent capacity, causing water restrictions across most of the state.

This report examined how well the Department of Sustainability and Environment had selected, prioritised and monitored water infrastructure projects included within state-wide and regional strategies. These strategies included the white paper, Securing our Water Future Together, the Central Region sustainable water strategy and the $4.9 billion Victorian water plan.
