Improving Water Management in Small Water Supplies in the Northern Territory

 

Overview

This project is about building the capacity of shires, outstation resource centres, communities and service suppliers to improve the management of small water supplies to protect public health. The focus is on the development and then ongoing support for water management plans which ensure the safety of drinking water supplies.

The aim of a water management plan is to consistently ensure that the drinking water supply is suitable and safe for consumption. Water management plans are water supply specific and enable those responsible for managing small community water supplies to work in-line with the recommendations of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (NHMRC, 2004).
