Infrastructure Australia engaged PriceWaterhouseCoopers to help identify opportunities to enhance existing water supply security strategies and to form practical recommendations for change at the federal, state and local government levels.
Infrastructure Australia's initial infrastructure audit identified concerns that best practices in planning for security in the face of climate change, and in water pricing and independent regulation were not being adopted by all jurisdictions.
Infrastructure Australia is now developing a plan of action to respond to the findings and recommendations in the PriceWaterhouseCoopers report. Infrastructure Australia is also undertaking a review of regional water security issues.
Infrastructure Australia welcomes feedback on the findings and recommendations in the PriceWaterhouseCoopers report. The report is available on Infrastructure Australia's website at www.infrastructureaustralia.gov.au/publications/index.aspx
