Regional water supply strategies

Regional water supply strategies are designed to secure our water supplies for the future.

These strategies are developed with local governments, water service providers, industry and community groups to balance demand and supply requirements for the short, medium and longer term. They aim to achieve the best possible environmental, social and economic outcomes across all sectors.

Some of the strategic considerations include:

  • population growth, changes to agricultural water use, and mining activity
  • managing demand and increasing water use efficiency
  • climate variability and the possible impacts of climate change
  • identifying communities at risk during extended droughts, or where demand may exceed supply.

The strategies are an important information source and can be read in conjunction with the state's regional plans, agricultural strategies and infrastructure plans to assist in enabling Queensland's continued growth.

This guide details the current regional strategies by area.
