What we do
What we do
WaterNSW was established on 1 January 2015 under the Water NSW Act 2014.
We are Australia’s largest water supplier and NSW’s major supplier of raw water. We deliver water from our 42 large dams, pipelines and the State’s rivers to regional towns, irrigators, Sydney Water and other licensed authorities, retail suppliers and councils.
We provide a single point of contact for the day-to-day business needs of water customers including the management of groundwater, regulated and unregulated water.
We develop infrastructure solutions for water supply security and reliability. We then plan, build, operate and maintain that infrastructure.
WaterNSW also promotes improvements in achievable water quality standards and contributes to the protection of public health and the environment through enhanced catchment protection practices in declared catchments.
We undertake research relating to the declared catchment areas under our stewardship and we perform an educative role within the community in relation to water quality and catchment health.
