VicWater has signed a funding agreement with DELWP to develop three pieces of industry guidance to support the implementation of the new recycled water guidelines. The three pieces of industry guidance will cover the following topics:
- a low burden approval guide and template for class B and C schemes
- an audit guide and template for all schemes
- a customer site management plan guide and template
By leading the development of these guides and templates, VicWater can ensure the intent of the new Recycled Water Guidelines, to institute low burden and risk based approval and compliance frameworks, will be realised in the implementation.
The public consultation on the new draft guideline has been delayed in the final formatting and presentation phase. However, all policy settings and regulatory frameworks are set.
