Drought, climate change and population growth place stress on existing potable water supplies, and alternative sources of water, to supplement traditional supplies, are well and truly on the agenda. The resulting complexity in the management of water presents new challenges for industry and regulators.  

WaterRA has been tasked by its members and stakeholders to manage research that will allow members to keep pace with change and address the industry's long term goals.

WaterRA brings together key water research groups and industry members across Australia to conduct targeted, priority research and is in a unique position to rapidly address current and emerging issues in water.

Our Education Program supports the training of young industry professionals to help build long term operational excellence and a strong research capability in the Australian water community.
