Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,
Welcome to our 2016 'Easter' update. We hope you all had a relaxing, safe and chocolatey long week-end!
The recent weeks have been eventful for the Victorian Water industry with several State Government announcements: the 50GL order for desalinated water for the 2016/17 delivery period, the reinstatement of the 'Target 155' campaign to encourage Melbournians to reduce their potable water use and finally, the recent release of the 'Water for Victoria' discussion paper, which supports the development of the new Water Plan.
Get involved in the consultation and come along to MAV's special session on Wednesday, April 6. This is a fantastic opportunity for Local Government reps to give input and provide feedback to inform the final water plan.
In this newsletter issue, we're also taking a closer look at current research:
- Find out what the CRC for water sensitive cities has achieved so far (Tranche 1) and where it is headed in the next few years (Tranche 2);
- Read up on the newest research into the benefits and the challenges associated with urban greening;
- Check out the Smart Water project report to learn how we can work towards 'Target 155' by improving the efficiency of our water coolers.
