The Department of Energy and Water Supply and the Department of Natural Resources and Mines have been combined to create the new Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

Reporting requirements

Recycled water providers operating under an approved recycled water management plan (RWMP) are obliged to regularly report to us through:

  • annual reports
  • report on noncompliance with water quality criteria
  • internal and regular audit reports.

The annual report must be published on the recycled water provider's website, unless the entity has a reasonable excuse.

Additionally, public reports must be prepared by providers that supply:

  • recycled water to augment a supply of drinking water
  • recycled water under a dual reticulation scheme.

As required in the Public reporting guideline for recycled water schemes (PDF, 385.2KB) public reports must be published on the recycled water provider's website.

Recycled water providers must keep a copy of the regular audit report, annual report and public report available for public inspection during business hours.

Reporting noncompliance incidents

Once a RWMP has been approved, a recycled water provider, scheme manager or declared entity must immediately inform us of:

  • any noncompliance with the scheme's water quality criteria
    or
  • any event that may have an adverse effect on public health.

After the initial verbal notification, the entity must provide an initial notification within 24 hours of the becoming aware of the noncompliance.

Within 5 business days after resolution of the noncompliance, the entity responsible for taking any corrective action must submit an investigation report.

The Notice of noncompliance with water quality criteria - Recycled water form (PDF, 671.0KB) must be completed to us.
