As part of the program you're required to:
- develop a Water Efficiency Management Plan (WEMP) detailing water saving targets, actions/initiatives
- provide annual progress reports on water saving targets, actions/initiatives.
What to include in a WEMP:
- a profile and description of your business and the current site operations
- site water use table and usage history
- water saving opportunities (including benchmark indicators and targets)
- water saving action plan (including timeframes).
Once your WEMP is submitted and accepted, it will be valid for 5 years. However, if your business changes ownership or the water use increases significantly, a revised WEMP may need to be submitted.
All the information you provide to us will remain confidential.
Penalties for non-compliance
Under the Water Agencies (Water Use) By-laws 2010, financial penalties may apply if you don't meet the mandatory requirements.
