Transparent water information
We will invest in technology and digital solutions to enhance our systems to ensure customers and the community have better access to accurate and timely water information. Some of our key objectives are to:
- encourage more efficient use of the resources available
- support water markets and trading
- improve the effectiveness of our compliance activities
- increase public confidence in how our water resources are regulated.
This work will include:
- developing systems to capture data to measure and monitor water use more effectively and efficiently (e.g. using telemetry on water meters to capture real-time data in high priority risk areas)
- making more information about water authorisations publicly available and accessible
- establishing future water information system requirements.
We are focussed on delivering timely, accessible and responsive water information and services to our customers.
We are working collectively and collaboratively with our stakeholders to develop innovative information, communication and technology strategies that enable our customers to easily access water information and services.
This aligns with the Queensland Government priority to be a responsive government.
Projects and timelines
