National risk assessment - water services in remote Indigenous communities

 

Overview

This project involved a national risk assessment aimed at identifying opportunities for the improvement of drinking water management in remote Indigenous communities. Key areas to be assessed included:

The project delivered a web-based tool, the Community Water Planner,covering chemical, physical and radiological risks to drinking water supplies.

The project provided Indigenous communities, governments, and service providers with better access to relevant and up-to-date information to help in the preparation of drinking water management plans. The information will enable planners, including community members, governments, and service providers, to better prioritise the issues with water services in remote Indigenous communities that need to be managed.
