About us

We’re the people taking care of the state’s water at the source – capturing, storing, delivering.

We're at the source

WaterNSW operates the state’s dams, capturing and storing water, and then supplying it ready for distribution – for the environment, agriculture, industry and the community.

With 41 major dams and hundreds of waterways across the state, we play a vital role at the source of the state’s water, delivering two thirds of all water used in NSW.

WaterNSW is a State-Owned Corporation and one of the main government agencies tasked with managing water in NSW.
