Reforming Urban Water: A national pathway for change
Reforming Urban Water: A national pathway for change is the fourth paper of Infrastructure Australia's Reform Series advising governments and regulators to make fundamental changes to the governance and regulation of Australia's urban water markets. The paper shows that without action a typical residential water and sewerage bill could be higher than $2,500 in today's money by 2040.
The paper calls on Australian governments to get on with the job of bringing urban water policy, regulation and governance up to speed so that it can meet the changing needs of Australians in the twenty-first century.
