    Water Corporation sowed the seeds for the NRSPP Utilities during the consultation as part of the NRSPP 2015 Benchmarking Project in Perth. Shane Sharples attended the workshop and challenged the NRSPP Program Director to create a Utilities Forum based around the template created during the consultation. Following discussions with SAPN and several other utility organisations the Utilities Forum was created and kindly hosted by SAPN on the 22 July 2015 at Oaks Plaza Pier Hotel at Glenelg which Water Corporation supplied data and each year following to.

    What has resulted following this forum was the establishment of an amazing network within the utilities sector. The following provides a summary of Water Corporation’s leadership as part of the NRSPP Utilities Forum.
