All Options on the Table

04 Nov 2019

The option of purifying recycled water to replenish water supplies has been covered in a number of media stories and announcements recently as part of discussions about drought and towns running out of water. In conjunction with a Daily Telegraph article on purified recycled water, NSW Minister for Water Melinda Pavey wrote an opinion piece supporting all options and diversity of supplies.

NSW Water Directorate has been working closely with Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) on an initiative called All Options on the Table. In light of the ongoing community concern about recycled water, WSAA have made the summary version of this document available on their website.  The website also has links with a range of community education materials which will save Local Water Utilities from having to start from scratch.

For any LWU considering going down this path, the Water Directorate and WSAA are available to provide support. Lesson One from the development of recycled water for drinking projects around the world is that you need to apply the ‘Three T’s’ – Trust, Transparency, and Time.

Please contact Water Directorate’s Executive Officer, Brendan Guiney if you have any questions or concerns.
