QWRAP

QWRAP is an industry-led initiative to investigate regional collaboration on water and sewerage services in regional Queensland. The program is a collaboration among the LGAQ, qldwater, the Queensland Government (through the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy) and over 30 participating councils. It provides a formal opportunity for councils to consider collaboration and alternative regional arrangements for managing services.
