Sydney Water provides high quality drinking water and wastewater services to more than 4.9 million people every day. The company’s new direction focuses on customers, resource efficiencies and investment in innovation for smart sustainable solutions.
Giving back to the community has always been an integral part of Sydney Water’s focus with initiatives including:
- City of Sydney’s Smart Green Apartments program – Sydney Water and SUMS are joint collaborators with the City of Sydney to drive improvements in water efficiency and sustainability in residential strata.
- Waterfix – This initiative provides opportunities for residential apartments buildings to improve water efficiency inside apartments. The SUMS platform is utilised to create awareness of water usage, to identify leaks and report on savings.
- Every Drop Counts in Schools – This program delivered Watersave data logging solutions and the SUMS portal access to 128 schools in the Sydney Water catchment, resulting in a 36% reduction in overall water use and an increased awareness of water management and water education in schools.
Sydney Water is investing in smart technologies to deliver an increasing number of improved customer services for sustainability, efficiencies and savings.
