Description

The community water planner field guide is a resource package aimed at water managers, service providers and Indigenous organisations working with remote communities to help them plan and put into practice water management programs for community settlements with small water supplies. It has resulted from a project created by the National Water Commission.

The package is for general application and can be adapted to suit almost any type of water supply. The guide has been developed in line with 'The Australian drinking water guidelines' and applies the risk management approach to water supplies outlined in the 'Framework for the management of drinking water quality'.

The guide uses a series of full-colour posters with a supporting manual. Hard copies of the package are available from the Centre for Appropriate Technology (CAT) and state/territory health departments.

Staff at CAT are available to help people who use the field guide in remote communities. A one-day hands-on workshop is available for facilitators to learn how to use the field guide. The workshop is presented by a water specialist and an Indigenous trainer from CAT.
