Redefining Water Security – Climate Independent Strategies

Redefining Water Security – Climate Independent Strategies

Current water security strategies on the East Coast of Australia are focused on demand management and provision of alternate supplies to defer the point we run out of water with the assumption that eventually rainfall will occur.

Details

There is a need to develop water management strategies that account for a much longer period of time where rainfall may not occur.

The objective of this project are:

  • To explain why this paradigm shift in thinking is necessary
  • To outline how to calculate what level of supply is needed
