Water Corporation’s approach to climate change risk management: optimising effort to our adaptation strategies:

The Water Corporation has been managing the impacts of a drying climate since the 1970’s through water source diversification to supplement decreased dam inflows and declining groundwater allocations. However, climate change will also create risks more broadly to our water, wastewater and drainage network. A systematic risk-based approach is required to better understand the impact of climate change on our ability to deliver our services to our customers, community and the environment.
