Environmental management

Our region has an incredible environment that needs to be protected, so we work hard to meet all legislative requirements.  

Under the Environment Protection Act 1997 (ACT) we hold various licenses for our activities and have a general duty of care to prevent and minimise environmental harm and nuisance as practicable and reasonable.

To meet these obligations, we operate under an environmental management system (EMS). This sets out procedures for protecting human health and the environment. To find out more, please read our Sustainability and Environmental Management Policy.

We have various environment management plans in place to identify and manage the environmental risks and opportunities associated with delivery of essential water and wastewater services for the community.

We deliver environmental management programs including catchment protection, environmental flows, biodiversity conservation, vegetation management, weed and pest control, heritage management and contamination management.

We monitor environmental ecology and performance to meet our commitment to sustainability and the environment beyond minimum compliance and to continually improve our EMS.
