Together, this network and associated assets is valued at around $1.3 billion. Managing these assets – and the environmental impacts associated with their use – is one of the biggest areas of Council activity: each year, we spend more than $50 million to operate the city’s water, wastewater and stormwater networks, and invest more than $25 million in new or upgraded assets.

Through better management of these assets, we anticipate that we can make savings on previous forecasts, without compromising service levels. We will also be promoting new urban growth in areas where existing water and stormwater networks already have enough capacity to deal with greater demand.
