- South West Victoria
Research QuestionThrough the South West node it was identified that the network of 300 emergency water supply points (EWSPs) across Victoria that provide water carting for emergency stock and domestic purposes and firefighting are managed and maintained by a range of organisations, including local councils and urban and rural water corporations. However, the level of maintenance and access varies considerably (some inoperable).
