The Smart Water Fund has announced that applications will open during October for $1 million in funding to support innovative urban water projects.

Smart Water Fund CEO Christine Cussen said “We’re looking forward to receiving Round 10 applications which can demonstrate innovation and leading edge research that will have a positive impact on the Victorian water industry.”

This round of Funding is open to commercial businesses, research institutions and consulting firms for projects which are able to demonstrate benefits and value to the Smart Water Fund Joint Venture partners.

More specifically, the Fund will seek applications in the areas of:

  • Innovation in asset planning, construction, operation, maintenance and renewal with the potential to enhance industry productivity, service level or reduce costs.

Online applications will open on the 26th October and close at 2:00pm 15th November 2012.

Information regarding applications for Round 10 is available on the Smart Water Fund’s website.

Smart Water Fund is a collaborative investment vehicle of the Victorian urban water utilities.
