Water Recycling in Sydney

January 9, 2007 at 4:44 am Leave a comment

Australia is aware of how precious water is as a resource. The city of Sydney is working to recycle 70 billion liters of water by 2015. This sustainable approach to water use will benefit all segments of society, from residential use to agriculture and industry. According to Water for Life, the New South Wales government initiative, water recycling will:

  • lower use of drinking water
  • less fresh water extracted from rivers by irrigators
  • less wastewater discharged into our rivers and oceans
  • potential to release recycled water (instead of drinking water) to mimic natural environmental river flows below our dams
