Victoria’s water industry is regulated through a comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional regulatory approach to ensure that Victorians have continuous and ready access to safe drinking water.
Four government agencies are involved in planning, managing and regulating Victoria’s water resources and water businesses. Each agency has a regulatory and oversight role that is defined in various Acts of Parliament, Regulations and guidelines. Collectively, these mechanisms set the economic, environmental and social obligations water business are obliged to comply with.
