The Victorian Government recently released a draft of its State Water Plan titled ‘Water for Victoria’. This Plan sets the strategic direction for how Victoria will manage water now and into the future.
‘Water for Victoria’ provides a number of recommendations and outlines expectations of City West Water and other water utilities relating to climate change. Recommendations include:
- Working together to achieve carbon neutrality.
- Ensuring strong alignment between climate change mitigation and adaptation action in plans and strategies related to the water sector.
- The water sector at least matches the state’s renewable energy target.
