What is qCRAC?

The qldwater Consortium for Research and Advocacy on Contaminants is a partnership among Queensland Service Providers to share information and partner with national research & policy programs on contaminants of emerging concern. QCRAC is overseen by the Consortium Steering Group (CSG).

The Need

Contaminants of emerging concern are an increasing issue for the local government water sector as community and regulator expectations increase and the ability to detect trace chemicals improves. Costs of dealing with contaminant issues will increase but can be mitigated through joint action and collaboration in national and international initiatives for research, policy and advocacy. In 2019, the qldwater Sewage and Water Environmental Advisory Panel recommended the formation of a Consortium to influence state and national policy, research and communications to lead future discussions about contaminants affecting Queensland Water and Sewerage Service Providers.
