Sydney Water and Northern Beaches Council have teamed up to tackle the drought, with a new partnership to achieve water savings across Sydney.

Five local councils have partnered with Sydney Water to deliver a water efficiency program targeting water savings in businesses and residential strata. The councils involved include Northern Beaches, Blacktown, Campbelltown, City of Parramatta and City of Sydney.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan has welcomed the partnership.

“This partnership is an important step to protect our water supply for future generations. We believe that working with Sydney Water, Council is in an excellent position to help our residents and businesses find water saving opportunities,” Mayor Regan said.

Councils and Sydney Water are co-funding the employment of project officers that will work with businesses and residential strata buildings within each council area to identify and implement measures to help save water.

Executive Drought Lead at Sydney Water, Catherine Port says there’s the opportunity to make significant savings.

“We hope to generate a sustained reduction in water demand through water efficiency. Our goal is to bring on board 250 businesses who will work towards saving a combined 750,000 litres per day,” said Mrs Port.

“This will mean a target of 275 million litres of water a year across the five council areas.”

Level 1 water restrictions remain in place across Greater Sydney and the Illawarra.
