Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) 2010 Annual Report Card

- / Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA)


This report card provides context for the changing face of the urban water industry.  It highlights the fact that Australian Utilities cannot rely on dams alone and will need to utilise multiple sources of supply.  It states the key drivers for change in the water industry are climate change, increased population, environmental flows as well as meeting higher customer expectations.  The cities of the future will have larger populations with the forecast from the ABS predicting Australia’s population will reach 35.5 million by 2056, the majority occurring in the established urban areas.
