Operational status

The Sydney Desalination Plant is currently in a state of availability to assist Sydney Water in providing high quality drinking water to customers in Greater Sydney.

Our ongoing availability recognises that the Sydney Desalination Plant has always been and will continue to be, an essential component of Sydney’s water management and an integral part of Sydney’s water resilient future.

Why desalination is important

Without desalination, Sydney’s water supply is entirely dependent on rainfall.
