The action contributed to more-efficient water use and to ensure reliable and safe water supply. Regional urban water corporations deliver the action through water supply demand strategies. For example, see the Barwon Water Water Supply Demand Strategy 2012 to 2062.

Water corporations must comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act 2003 and its regulations.
