Submission to the Productivity Commission on Reform of Australia’s Urban Water Sector

The BCA has made a submission to the Productivity Commission inquiry on reforms to Australia’s urban water sector. The submission restates our urban water reform agenda from earlier BCA publications Groundwork for Growth and Water Under Pressure.

The submission advocates for reforms which ensure planning for future water demand, transparent evaluation of all water source options; pricing and regulation frameworks which ensure that additional supply increments are provided in a timely way, and consumers are able to decide the level of water reliability they want to pay for, above an equitable minimum.
