Manningham Council has endorsed an implementation plan to guide the development of its Integrated Water Management Strategy (IWMS).
The IWMS is a collaborative approach to the way Council will plan for and manage water as a valuable resource.
Pressure has mounted on Manningham’s management of its water resources due to a variety of drivers, including climate change and population growth.
The strategy will deliver a proactive approach to address these risks, helping to secure a resilient, liveable and sustainable future for Manningham.
A Flooding and Stormwater Management Community Reference Panel will be formed in late July, to provide a community voice to guide the development of the IWMS.
In September, an external consultant will be appointed to further assist Council in developing the Strategy.
