Power and Water has a long history of working with Territorians in highlighting how precious our water resources are and encouraging the efficient use of water. This work in water demand management helps secure the long term water future of the Northern Territory, increasing water security and better allowing for growth.
Despite recent water use reductions in some of our major centres, Territorians continue to be the highest per capita water users in Australia. A reduction in water use is not about going without or sacrificing our lifestyle. It’s about the community working together to reduce the amount of water wasted and respecting this natural resource.
Different communities have different levels of water security, so Power and Water targets efforts to regions with the greatest need. Water demand management will continue in the Northern Territory and is a core component of the Northern Territory strategic water plan.
