Feedback on the draft Roadmap to an improved regulatory framework for local water utilities

September 2021

IPWEA NSW and ACT has provided feedback to the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment on the draft Roadmap to an improved regulatory framework for local water utilities. The Roadmap was developed following engagement with the local water utility sector and sets out the actions the department will undertake to improve the regulatory framework for local water utilities (https://www.industry.nsw.gov.au/water/plans-programs/risk-reduction/focus-areas).

Our response highlighted key areas of importance for our members including infrastructure resilience, ensuring financial capacity and strengthening local collaboration within the regulatory framework for a sustainable approach to water supply in Regional NSW.
