Statewide Water Information Management Reporting

In 2014, specific changes to the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008 (the Act) were enacted. These changes aim to simplify regulatory requirements and remove the need for service providers to have multiple management plans in place. Instead, mandatory reporting on key performance indicators (KPIs) were introduced.

In conjunction with the KPIs, service providers with >10,000 connections are also required to report on indicators as part of the National Performance Reporting (NPR) framework.

The KPIs and NPR are designed to monitor and benchmark performance on common industry metrics including water security, capacity to ensure continuity of supply, affordability, financial sustainability, industry and workforce capability and quality of service provided to customers.

Results of the performance reports are reported through the Statewide Water Information Management (SWIM) database. The database was created to collate the significant volume of data and distribute it to various State and Commonwealth agencies.

The data will be used by Government agencies to create benchmarking reports.
