Stormwater Queensland believes that the current Queensland regulatory framework for rainwater tanks wastes an opportunity to maximise the use of stormwater that would simultaneously decrease the demand for expensive new water infrastructure and improve water security.

However, we advocate that changing the Queensland Development Code has the potential to minimise the plethora of negative effects and missed opportunities of the current regulations.
