With water playing a lead role in cooling and greening the city, we're working, as part of the Parkland City Planning Partnership, to identify and create opportunities to help bring the Western Parkland City vision to life. Water and wastewater are essential for growth and development, but they'll also play a vital role in ensuring the Western Parkland City becomes a vibrant, liveable, sustainable urban centre.
We’re working with customers, partners and the wider community to deliver affordable and essential water services, healthy waterways and vibrant, cool, green places for people to come together to live, work and play in Western Sydney.
Taking an integrated approach to managing the total water cycle, we’re accelerating the construction of new water and wastewater assets, as well as amplifying existing services to support current and future growth.
Western Sydney is in the midst of an exciting transformation, and none of it is possible without water.
Between 2020 and 2022, we’re investing $1.3 billion in infrastructure projects in the Western Sydney Aerotropolis Growth Area (WSAGA). By 2026, we’ll have invested about $3 billion in infrastructure across the Western Sydney Parkland City.
Reusing water is central to this approach, and there are already some recycled water schemes in place for non-drinking purposes.
We’re working with customers, businesses, other utilities, government agencies and councils through the Parkland City Planning Partnership to identify and collaborate on opportunities for integrated, water resilient and landscape-led planning that will help bring the Western Sydney Parkland City vision to life.
