What we do

WaterNSW was established on 1 January 2015 under the Water NSW Act 2014.

Our purpose is to improve the availability of water that is essential for our customers and the communities of NSW. We achieve our purpose through key activities:

  • Being the state’s bulk water supplier and river operator
  • Providing water entitlement and allocation holders and the community as a whole with “one stop shop” licensing and water trade services and information on surface and groundwater quantity and water quality
  • Protection of the Greater Sydney drinking water catchment to ensure safe water is supplied to Sydney Water for treatment and distribution to its customers
  • Planning, developing, owning and operating infrastructure to increase the reliability and security of water supplies to our customers and the communities of NSW.
