Achieving Integrated Water Projects at the Local Level

Tuesday 17th Jun 2014 5:30PM - 8:00PM

Treasury Theatre
1 Macarthur Street, East Melbourne, Victoria


The final version of Plan Melbourne was released on 19 May 2014 by the Minister for Planning. What implications does this have for the water industry?

In accordance with the draft document released last year it addresses the issue of sustainable water management calling for initiatives such as local stormwater catchment and recycling. How are developers, water corporations and councils going to respond? What are the practical opportunities? And at what cost?

The benefits are said to accrue to the wider community through reduced potable water demand, reduced flood impacts downstream and potential environmental and amenity benefits. So who should bear the cost? What are the opportunities for developers or the wider community to capture the benefits?

These and related issues will be explored in this seminar. Come and hear the OLV view and from experts who understand the issues in pricing alternative water projects and the lessons from projects being implemented so far.
