Sydney Water is planning an Advanced Water Recycling Centre (AWRC) at Kemps Creek.

The project includes the construction and operation of a:

  • new Advanced Water Recycling Centre
  • new treated water pipeline
  • new environmental flows pipeline
  • new brine (a waste by-product of the reverse osmosis process) pipeline
  • associated ancillary infrastructure.

The AWRC and associated pipelines will be built to support the population and economic growth of Western Sydney, including designated growth areas known as South West Growth Area and Western Sydney Aerotropolis Growth Area.

The project’s infrastructure will be located in the local government areas of Canterbury-Bankstown, Fairfield, Liverpool, Penrith and Wollondilly.

Use this map to provide your suggestions and feedback. Simply place a marker on the area of the project of interest to you and insert your comment. You can place multiple markers, leave multiple comments or add a comment to an existing marker.

As part of the process of treating wastewater, the AWRC will produce high-quality water suitable for a wide range of non-drinking uses in homes, for various industrial uses, in businesses, in agriculture and for watering of public open spaces.

Given its high quality, it can also be released to local waterways such as the Nepean and Warragamba Rivers to help sustain our important river ecosystems that continue to come under significant pressure from climatic changes and developments in their catchments.

Sydney Water has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to describes the project and assesses its environmental and community impacts. The EIS will be placed on public exhibition on 21 October 2021, providing the community with an opportunity to review and make submissions on the findings presented in the document.

Please visit this page regularly as we will be posting regular updates as the project progresses.
