Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to the latest update from the Clearwater team.

In this edition, we update you on changes within the Clearwater team as we welcome back some familiar faces. 

With recent changes to the Smart Water Fund, the Clearwater resource library will soon be expanding to include over 140 research projects. 

One research project includes the Urban Water Cycle Planning Guide - an exciting new web-based tool to assist urban developers, consultants and planners with incorporating Whole-of-Water Cycle Management principles into new developments within the Barwon Region. The tool was developed by the Barwon Region Integrated Water Cycle Management Network with support from the Smart Water Fund. Clearwater will assist with capacity building of the Guide and has three half day training workshops planned:
