Water plan monitoring, reporting and review

We monitor the implementation of each plan to make sure it's achieving its outcomes.

This includes using data from:

We also use data from water supply scheme operators, who monitor and report on their infrastructure. Find out more about data collection and reporting standards.


The data we collect is used to:

  • support the development of water plans
  • prepare the Minister's reports.

The Minister's report is prepared at least every 5 years for the life of the plan. The reports are a water plan's 'health check'. You can download Minister reports from our library collection.


Before a water plan expires, its performance is evaluated. This risk assessment helps determine if a plan can be extended, amended or needs a full review and replacement.

When an existing water plan is reviewed, all the plan development steps are done in full again.
