Check your water quality online
Residents in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and Illawarra can now check their water quality via an online portal that uses real-time data.
NSW Minister for Primary Industries Land and Water Niall Blair said drinking water is monitored at key steps from catchment to tap.
“This world-class system is possible because of the highly skilled and dedicated Sydney Water and WaterNSW employees who work around the clock to deliver safe and high-quality drinking water to customers every day of the year.”
NSW Health oversees water delivery by Sydney Water and WaterNSW to make sure it meets Australian drinking water guidelines, with scientists running up to 70 different types of laboratory tests every day.
