    We're looking at waterways around Sydney that are in need of repair and investigating if we can do things differently.

    Have your say about future projects at Muddy Creek, Brighton-Le-Sands, or the stormwater channel at St Lukes Park, Concord.

    Splash is a collaborative network funded through a Building Resilience to Climate Change grant (OEH and NSW Environmental Trust), Sydney Water, and Blacktown Council. The purpose of the network is to build capacity to facilitate the transition of NSW cities and towns to ‘water sensitive cities’ that are more liveable, sustainable and resilient to climate change.

    We submitted a flexible pricing proposal for large non-residential customers to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART), as part of our current price review.

    IPART has determined that large non-residential customers can enter into unregulated pricing agreements for water and waste water services, provided both parties agree.

  • Green Square Stormwater Drain

    Sheascreek

    We’re working with the City of Sydney to build a new stormwater drain from Zetland to Alexandria. The drain will be big enough to empty 300 bathtubs a second into Alexandra Canal.

    As part of this project, we’re widening the existing open concrete channel that runs along Shea’s Creek, between Maddox Street and Alexandra Canal. This will include a new shared path alongside the channel for pedestrians and cyclists.

    We’ve been busy at North Head – we’re testing the new equipment we built last year, to make sure the Plant is running well.

    We’re also talking to the local community to understand how we can do things better. Our consultants, EKAS, have been asking you what you think. They’ve been doing a telephone survey – if you’ve participated, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We’ll use the information you provide to focus on improving what is most important to you and keeping you updated about the plant.

    We’re working toward our environmental goal of reducing wet weather wastewater overflows to Woolloomooloo Bay. We are planning to separate the currently combined wastewater and stormwater systems in Woolollomooloo.

    We have finished assessing the project's environmental impacts in our Review of Environmental Factors which was on public display from Monday 11 April to Monday 9 May 2016. The submission period is now finished.

  • 75 Gardeners Road, Eastlakes

    Eastlakes

    We own 75 Gardeners Road, Eastlakes and don't require the land for our operational purposes.

    We're looking at options to rezone the land to mixed use or residential.

    Community access and enjoyment of the site and the nearby Botany Wetlands is a key consideration for us. We are after your views on how you see the area in future!

    Sydney Water is improving Picton Water Recycling Plant so it continues to protect the local environment.
    This will allow it to accept more wastewater from population growth and local industries. We are also developing a long-term strategy to manage wastewater in the area.

    We are seeking input from members of the community and other stakeholders. Get involved and have your say by applying to join our Community Reference Group or signing up for updates and joining the online discussion.

  • Economic level of water conservation

    11 months ago
    Elwc

    We're developing a new, adaptive approach to water conservation. It’s called the Economic Level of Water Conservation (ELWC).

    This will help us work out the most effective water conservation projects and the right level of investment in reducing leaks, water efficiency programs and water recycling.

    This will replace our existing water conservation requirements and we'd like to know what you think!
