A key aspect of the Water Efficiency Program is addressing network leakage and water loss as a priority. The need to focus on local water utilities’ network leakage and water losses became apparent during the drought and has been reinforced during consultation with Councils and the wider sector as part of the Town Water Risk Reduction Program.
The department is scoping a program in collaboration with the NSW Water Directorate and local water utilities that targets the pillars of effective leakage management. The program will focus on where the NSW Government can provide the most value to local water utilities, enhancing their ability to identify leaks and target and fix leaks as part of their asset management framework.
