Our drinking water

Some of the world's best

We’ve helped make Sydney a liveable city for over 130 years and we’re passionate and proud of our role in shaping the lifestyle of Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra for generations to come.

Our tap water is the most sustainable choice when it comes to quenching your thirst because there are no plastic bottles, no packaging, and no extra transport like some other options. Over five million people drink our refreshing tap water every single day.

We have some of the best drinking water in the world. That’s because we are dedicated to making sure we always meets the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines – which are some of the strictest in the world.

Your water's source

Most of your drinking water is sourced from rainwater, collected in lakes and rivers that are surrounded by some of the most unspoilt native bushland in the region, including World Heritage National Parks.
