Recycling

Water recycling is treating and reusing wastewater, greywater and stormwater for non-drinking purposes in and outside the home, in industry, for irrigation and agriculture.

Recycled water is an integral part of ensuring a sustainable water supply in New South Wales.  With the changes and improvements in technology, the effect of climate change on water resources, population growth and the increasing price of water, future demand for recycled water is expected to rise.
