Sydney Water

Sydney’s drinking water is some of the best in the world. We should be proud of the quality of our water!

Our stories

Drinking water quality

Our tap water is from natural sources and every drop is filtered to meet Australia’s health and quality guidelines – which are some of the strictest in the world.

Drinking water and the environment

While all water comes from nature, it’s how it gets to us that has a big impact on the environment.

Drinking bottled water is on the rise. New brands are popping up all the time with clever advertising driving big sales. Yet, the fact is bottled water has enormous impacts on the environment and your wallet.

Our water is the sustainable choice – sourced locally and has no packaging and costs less than 1 cent per litre.

By choosing tap water rather than bottled water you are helping the environment.

Challenging Perceptions

Sydney Water challenges perceptions that bottled water is better and encourages our community to choose tap water for their wellbeing, wallet and the environment.
