Initial Resource Position

We want to ensure that there is enough water available in the future to satisfy everyone’s needs. An understanding of the need for water resource across our diverse region is therefore critical to building a resilient and sustainable water resources plan.

What are we doing

We want to ensure that there is enough water available in the future to satisfy everyone’s needs. An understanding of the need for water resource across our diverse region is therefore critical to building a resilient and sustainable water resources plan.

Responding to this challenge Water Resources West has prepared an initial view of its long term resource position. This represents a transition to the next set of long term water resources plans to be finalised in 2023.

By 2050 we’re going to need over 200 million additional litres per day of new water resources across WRW.

Why we need your help

Our vision is that we will realise these opportunities by working together in a collaborative way. Given the scale of ambition, the abstractors can’t do this on their own. We also need input from a wide range of stakeholders. We will need your feedback and your ideas.

We invite and encourage you to read our Initial Resource Position and share your thoughts, to help further development of our water resources plans.
