Sydney Water's Environment Protection Licences Review

The EPA is conducting its five yearly review of Sydney Water’s Environment Protection Licences (EPLs).

The review covers Sydney Water’s 23 EPLs for our wastewater and recycling plants and systems.

The EPA will seek comments from the public on whether the EPLs are servicing the needs of the community and if there are any issues that need to be addressed in the existing licences.

Sydney Water looks forward to working with the EPA and we welcome feedback from the community. The review will be completed by 1 July 2015.

Sydney Water places a high priority on protecting the environment and ensuring our operations minimise our impacts on the environment and the community.

Sydney Water also works continually with the EPA and the community to improve the EPLs during the licence periods if issues arise.
