ACT and Region's Future Water Supply

In response to the variability of climate change and unpredictable rainfall patterns, the ACT Government continues to plan ahead to secure the ACT and region's future water supply.

The region's water supply has historically been dependent on rainfall, and as the drought continues, it is essential that a greater range of water security measures are put in place - incorporating both supply and demand.

These measures represent effective planning of water resources, within a staged, adaptive management approach, to ensure adequate water supplies for the ACT Region into the future.

ACTEW Corporation has already taken many steps to provide a high quality, reliable supply for the ACT and continues to work towards securing the ACT's water supply for the future .
