Water Infrastructure Ministerial Working Group

The Water Infrastructure Ministerial Working Group, established by the Prime Minister, has developed an Options Paper that explores processes to accelerate infrastructure investment and priorities for investment. This includes new or existing dams to assist in economic development, flood mitigation and responding to community and industry needs.

The right water infrastructure in the right place will help grow our economy, meet future challenges and manage this vital resource responsibly.

The Options Paper includes a shortlist of potential infrastructure projects identified by the working group following consultation with state and territory governments.

The list comprises a range of projects from around Australia, varying from projects that could be considered for possible Commonwealth capital investment to those that need further investigation into feasibility.
