Ballarat City Integrated Water Management Plan

The Ballarat City Integrated Water Management Plan (IWM) was jointly developed by Central Highlands Water, Corangamite Catchment Management Authority and the City of Ballarat based on the community’s vision for “a greener, more liveable and prosperous water future”.

The plan explores options and sets out recommendations for future water management in the greater Ballarat City area. It will deliver on liveability and community benefits through the whole of urban water cycle, including the management of stormwater, wastewater, water supplies (surface water and groundwater) and waterways.

The summary plan offers an overview of the collaborative planning process and the key implementation actions. While the full report provides a comprehensive overview of the plan development methodology, assessment of options, stakeholder engagement and recommendations.
