The management and protection of the Australian Capital Territory’s water resources is one of the most important priorities for the ACT Government.

The Environment and Planning Directorate maintains several roles in relation to the management of water in the ACT.

It is responsible for a range of water efficiency programs to help you use less water in your home, your garden or your business.

The Directorate also has management of high-level strategic water policy, including the national water reform agenda and national competition issues relating to water access, pricing and trading.

In addition, the Directorate regulates the Territory’s water resources and monitors and reports on water quality in the ACT.

The public consultation for the Draft ACT Water Strategy 2013 is now closed.
