Deloitte Access Economics
Commentary and results from the Deloitte / Australian Water Association State of the Water Sector Survey 2014.
Deloitte and the Australian Water Association (AWA) have launched the fourth edition of theState of the Water Sector Report, which tracks trends and provides insights into the views of sector professionals and where they see the industry today and into the future.
The findings which include a national overview as well as state and territory-specific reports – are based on responses from over 1162 participants across this diverse industry sector.
Key findings from this year's thought leadership include:
- Water security
- Economic regulations and industry structure
- The price of water
As dry seasonal conditions have eased in all states aside from West Australia, and water security issues have been addressed, our survey results show that water professionals have turned their primary focus to operational efficiencies as well as the need to maintain and augment existing water infrastructure.
