Regulating the water industry
The Department of Energy and Water Supply through the Queensland Water Supply Regulator, administers the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008.
The Act is aimed at ensuring continuity of water and sewerage operations and ensuring risks to public health are minimised by:
- establishing regulatory provisions for recycled water and drinking water
- incorporating, largely without change, Chapter 3 'Infrastructure and Service' of the Water Act 2000.
The Queensland Water Supply Regulator will ensure that service providers meet the regulatory provisions, and will continue to manage dam safety, water supply assets, and water and sewerage service providers.
Guidelines for Service providers
- Drinking water
- Flood risk and stormwater management
- Planning for water supply and sewerage
- Referable dams
- Total management
- Service provision
