Refresh Woolloomooloo

In areas of Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst and Potts Point both the stormwater and wastewater are collected in the same pipe. During heavy rain, there is an increase in the amount of water in the wastewater system. Parts of Woolloomooloo and Darlinghurst experience unpleasant odour during dry weather and this is partly due to the combined wastewater system.

We are separating the combined wastewater and stormwater systems in Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst and Potts Point. When we finish, these areas will have new pipes, the storm water flowing into Woolloomooloo Bay will be cleaner and odours significantly reduced. For more information about the project, what we're doing, the precincts where we're working, and contact information visit the Refresh Woolloomooloo page on Sydney Water's website.

This site is a forum for you to find out more about the project, raise concerns, ask questions and contribute to the conversation. This site is open to everyone and provides an opportunity for you to comment and see what other members of the community have to say.
