Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to the latest update from the Clearwater team.

We are excited to announce details of our second partnership event with Stormwater Victoria WSUD Asset Management - Defining the Problem. This interactive workshop will focus on problem definition, a critical first step to the problem solving process. Places are limited so make sure you register early to secure your place.

A key strategic piece of work underway by the Clearwater team is our Program wide market research project. As a member of the Clearwater community, your opinion is what matters the most. Over the coming weeks, we will be asking for your feedback on our Program as well as you and your organisations' IWM needs to ensure we offer you the most relevant services now and into the future.

The Victorian Government have made several announcements over the past month and have engaged with all water boards to share their agenda. A major focus will be climate change and ensuring they have the best people with the right skills to deal with the environmental and economic challenges of the future. Expressions of interest for water corporation board appointments are now open.

A number of industry associations and organisations have provided submissions to the Senate Inquiry into Stormwater across Australia which closed last Friday. A final report is due to be released late June.

We share a number of industry events and resources including presentations from our last event, Delivering value in Integrated Water Management and feature new WSUD Design Guidelines from Auckland City Council.
