Review of the regulatory framework for alternative urban water supplies

EPA Victoria / Department of Health / Department of Sustainability and Environment


This report details the outcomes of the review of the public health and environment framework supporting the use of alternative water supplies conducted by EPA Victoria and the Department of Human Services under the Victorian Government White Paper, Our Waste Our Future.

The framework was reviewed in response to increased pressure on reticulated water supplies as a result of the drought and increased usage of alternative supplies by the residential, commercial and industrial sectors.
