Swimming in healthy local waterways is the future that we're bringing to life through Urban Plunge, an exciting Sydney Water project. Urban Plunge has been designed to accelerate the delivery of more swimming and recreation opportunities in the rivers, creeks, lakes and inlets of our cities and suburbs.
Visit the Urban Plunge website to find your nearest swim spot and learn how we're making your waterways swimmable.
Urban Plunge Sydney needs partners, technology, processes and investment to support opening new swimming sites. Your organisation's support will make it easier and more cost-effective for government, the private sector and the community to deliver on this bold vision for Sydney, the Illawarra and the Blue Mountains.

Water is at the heart of creating green and connected places, and we have a strong cultural connection to water. Making it possible to swim in rivers has the capacity to transform amenity, recreation, health and enterprise across Greater Sydney. That's what Urban Plunge is about. Our ambition is to support local councils, government agencies and private enterprise to open new swimming sites throughout Greater Sydney. Sydney Water has partnered with councils to support the delivery of new swim sites across Sydney's waterways. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the movement.
Urban Plunge builds on and expands work that's been delivered on the Parramatta River. Through ourit's been possible to safely and swiftly open new recreational areas to swim, splash and play in. There are now several swimmable areas in the Parramatta River, and many more are on the way.
RiverWatch, established in 2019, is Sydney Water's recreational water quality monitoring and reporting program. It supports councils and government agencies to open new swim sites, and provides ongoing monitoring and support once sites are open.
RiverWatch helps us measure and report on recreational water quality at swimming and kayaking locations. It provides real-time advice on daily and forecast suitability, and information on long-term water quality trends.
Our expertise in water quality modelling and monitoring through Sydney Water Monitoring Services, our National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited lab services, together with our network of technology partners means we can help local councils, agencies and developers open new swimming sites faster.
Naturally, RiverWatch will support Urban Plunge. It will be providing real-time swim site data in 2022. Feel free to email us for more information at email@example.com.
The free one-day Urban Plunge Tech Summit 2022 was an industry-based event showcasing techniques and innovations that can make swimming and aquatic recreation in our waterways easier, cheaper and safer to deliver.
