WSAA is pleased to make a submission to the Productivity Commission's Inquiry into National Water Reform.
In preparing this submission to the Productivity Commission's Issues Paper WSAA has consulted broadly with its membership through a number of ‘have your say’ webinars with utility staff, Managing Directors/CEOs and Chairs.
The urban water industry is highly trusted by the community and has a strong track record of providing high quality services to ensure Australians have liveable and productive places to live. Notwithstanding the success of the industry, there are important areas where the removal of roadblocks at a national level would support the industry as it seeks to deliver better outcomes for customers.
Our submission has a number of recommendations, including a new National Water Initiative to assist the urban water sector to deliver water security and healthy, liveable communities for its customers, in the face of challenges including population growth and climate change.
