Drought Preparedness Plan

Our Drought Preparedness Plan - an important mechanism to assist management of water shortages

In order to enhance Melbourne’s preparedness, this Drought Preparedness Plan is predicated on the following key components:

  • the preparedness of Greater Western Water to optimise and manage its water portfolio to mitigate future uncertainty
  • the capacity and ability of Greater Western Water to promptly react to drought or water shortage events
  • the preparedness of our customers, if such an event occurred, to manage their open spaces, gardens and other critical assets; and
  • a shared commitment to ensuring critical community assets remain sustainable and viable.
