Central Coast Water Security Plan

This is the long-term water strategic plan for the Central Coast region which aims to ensure we have sufficient water into the future. 

The Central Coast Water Security Plan is the long-term water strategic plan for the Central Coast region which aims to ensure we have sufficient water into the future.

As the Central Coast grows, so does the demand for water. However, our current infrastructure can only supply us with a limited amount of water, so we need to address ways to grow our supply, to meet our future demand. We need to plan for new supplies well in advance to allow for them to be developed in time, so we are ready to accelerate the plan if we experience shocks such as drought.

The plan includes actions to ensure supply of water to homes, businesses and industry now and into the future. The plan identifies actions to reduce the amount of water we use, make the most of our existing water supply sources and to ensure Council is prepared for future droughts.

The plan has been developed in collaboration with Hunter Water Corporation and Department of Planning, Infrastructure and the Environment.
