National Water Grid Authority


The National Water Grid Authority is shaping Australia's water infrastructure future.

The Authority was established by the Australian Government to play a key role in shaping national water infrastructure policy and investment. This includes leading the development of a National Water Grid – a series of region-specific systems that will help secure reliable supplies of water now and into the future.

We work in partnership with state and territory governments to identify, plan and invest in water infrastructure projects across the country that will support thriving regions by growing our agriculture sector, increasing water security and building resilience.

Over $1.5 billion is already committed from the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund and the National Water Infrastructure Loan Facility to fund the construction of 22 water infrastructure projects.
