NSW Health continued to support Public Health Units and the Department of Industry - Water to identify and manage public health risks associated with recycled water schemes.

The NSW Health Water Unit supported the safe use of recycled water by:

  • reviewing two applications for water recycling schemes under the Water Industry Competition Act 2006
  • advising Public Health Units and major water utilities (Hunter Water Corporation and Sydney Water Corporation)
  • participating in three Water Recycling Working Group meetings
  • developing new guidance material for environmental health officers dealing with water recycling schemes
  • presenting at a water recycling seminar, attended by local government and Public Health Unit staff.
