About the program
We are seeking new ways and approaches to working with the community to ensure we have secure, reliable water sources and to build future resilience to climate change and droughts. The efficient use of water will contribute to the sustainability of long-term supplies as population increases, build resilience to drought and support readiness to respond to future extremes in weather.
Better valuing our precious water resources is an important message in the NSW Water Strategy, with ongoing water conservation practices identified as a required part of managing the ongoing water needs of NSW communities.
Increased investment in water system efficiency, water conservation and demand management can delay the timing and reduce the scale of investment in new supply infrastructure and maximise the value of our resources. Water conservation is strongly supported by communities and businesses, and across government.
