Why we need to save water

Melbourne can’t rely on rain anymore to meet our growing water needs. With the impacts of climate change and population growth, we need to work together to make every drop count  find out what we're doing and how you can help. 

Read the Water Outlook

Did you know we collaborate with the metropolitan retail water companies to produce the Water Outlook each year? 

The outlook provides a summary of the state of Melbourne's water supply and demand, setting out actions to be taken by the water industry to maintain safe and reliable supplies.

It is based on storage volumes in the Melbourne water supply system in late November each year, is published on 1 December each year, and applies for the year ahead.
