Sydney Water has been engaging with Transport NSW for the proposed Picton Bypass. We understand the concerns the community may have with respect to capacity and managing the recycled water at the Picton Treatment Plant. Our Review of Environmental Factors is currently on display as we work to increase reuse and discharge at the treatment plant.
TfNSW is aware of the important role the farm plays in the treatment process. We will continue to work with TfNSW to understand timeframes and potential impacts. The intention is to not impact our capacity to manage recycled water through reuse with mitigation where possible in any future design of the road and equivalent offset irrigation areas where needed.
