Drinking water source protection reports
For each public drinking water source area around the state, the department develops drinking water source protection reports including assessments, plans and reviews, or land use and water management stategies prepared in conjunction with the Western Australian Planning Commission.
A drinking water source protection report:
- identifies the public drinking water source area boundary
- assigns priority areas and protection zones
- assesses current risks to drinking water quality and public health
- recommends management measures to address the risks
- guides land use planning and development
- provides an essential guide for local and state government, water service providers, industry, mining and agriculture, developers and land owners.
Here is a poster displaying a complete list of drinking water source protection reports. The relevant reports can be found by using publications search or by selecting drinking water source protection reports.
