Victorians are already very waterwise with water efficiency programs such as permanent water saving rules and targeting lower water use reducing average household water use in Melbourne by 35 per cent in the last 10 years. However, growing population and ongoing dry conditions mean that we need to continue to invest in programs that plan for a future that can better withstand climate change and meet the needs of a growing population.
