Project Description

This research considered whether urban water governance, environmental regulation and recreational water quality management impact decisions to either reuse urban wastewater or dispose of it to the environment, and identifies opportunities for reform. Broader outcomes from the research included results being used to inform and support the establishment of a National Outfall Database as part of research by the Marine Biodiversity Hub under the National Environmental Science Programme (NESP).
