Waterwise Development Program

The Waterwise Development Program highlights the fundamental role developers have in building waterwise communities by providing a way to recognise best practice outcomes.

Supporting developers to implement water efficiency principles in their estates helps us work towards our long-term plan to provide a sustainable water future for generations to come.

Waterwise ApprovedWe are excited to announce that the Waterwise Development Program criteria has been expanded and a new recognition scheme has been introduced, moving beyond water efficiency focussing on broader outcomes like urban cooling and public amenity.
