Houses in the catchment

Water cycle management studies help assess whether developments will have a NorBE.

All development applications in the Sydney drinking water catchment must include a water cycle management study (WCMS) to help council and WaterNSW assess whether the development will have a neutral or beneficial effect on water quality (NorBE).

Water Quality Information Requirements (PDF, 401.8 KB) for development in the Sydney drinking water catchment document describes the different reports and modelling you need to include with a development application, and how they vary for different types and scales of development.
