Recommendation

Reduce pressure on water infrastructure through better water management and conservation

Section: 6.3. Building attractive and inclusive cities

How

Steps that should be taken to reduce pressure on water infrastructure include:

  1. Using planning rulebooks to encourage on-site solutions. For example, building coverage could be increased in exchange for installation of on-site stormwater-management devices.
  2. Removing regulatory barriers to water conservation, such as consent requirements to install rainwater harvesting tanks.
  3. Setting performance standards that improve the water performance of appliances.
