    Background Summary

    Sydney Water is preparing to release a Request for Tender for the tankering of wastewater from areas of Sydney not currently connected to the main wastewater system. The service includes the collection of wastewater from temporary storage facilities and transport to nominated discharge points within Sydney Water’s existing wastewater network. Sydney Water will determine service frequency.


    Sydney Water is seeking service provider(s) who have the capability and capacity to manage the varying volumes of wastewater that emanate from the collection areas and a sound appreciation of the environmental and customer interest in these activities. The objectives which providers must be able to demonstrate are as follows:

    - Capability within their transport systems to manage the varying volumes

    - Capability to provide as required short response time to emergency situations

    - Delivering value for money through efficient and transparent processes

    - Safety accreditation and management systems

    - An understanding of Environmental Protection Agency requirements in accordance with waste transportation.

    It should be noted that Sydney Water has yet to determine whether a single or multiple service providers will be engaged to perform the Tankering Services. If multiple service providers were engaged it is likely that the tankering services will be allocated on a geographical basis.
