The Commission has published extensive reports on a range of issues to promote transparency in the water sector and encourage action on emerging water reform issues.

Independent and public reports of this nature provide credible assessments of the progress being made toward improved water management outcomes, and help generate national conversation around current water reform issues.

Regular report series have included our biennial assessments, annual markets reports, and national performance reports covering urban water utilities and rural water service providers.

The Commission will continue to publish reports as part of our commitment to strong, transparent and public reporting on water reform progress – see our current website under publications.
