Following the reading group, the RBMS consulted with its members to prepare a formal submission on the Water Bill Exposure Draft. Our submission is available online here.
The RBMS invites you to our next Reading Group on Thursday 6 February 2014 to discuss the recently released Water Bill Exposure Draft.
Victoria has two main Acts that govern the management and use of water – the Water Act 1989 and the Water Industry Act 1994. The Water Bill Exposure Draft proposes to bring these Acts into a single new streamlined Water Act. The Exposure Draft has been prepared for public exposure and comment; with submissions due 5PM on Friday 14th February 2014.
You can find the Water Bill Exposure Draft; as well as an explanatory guide outlining the main changes proposed and stakeholder-specific info sheets here.
