Water

The water catchments for the existing dams supplying water to Canberra and the catchment of possible future potable water supply dams for the ACT and its region will be protected from any development that would adversely affect the quality of that water.

SHORT TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Planning for an adequate new water supply undertaken with ACTEW in the context of an agreed regional water supply strategy.
  • Amendments to sustainable development design guidelines to ensure new developments and redevelopment meet appropriate water sensitive urban design standards.

MEDIUM TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Consideration of regulations for water efficiency measures.
  • Molonglo Valley development to introduce water quality control measures for the existing metropolitan area.
