The International Water Association (IWA) has awarded a Global Honour Award to Sydney Water for its Critical Water Mains Strategy and Implementation Project, the award to be officially presented at the IWA World Water Congress in Korea in September.


“Sydney Water is proud of its world class strategy in maintaining major water mains,” said Sydney Water Managing Director Kevin Young.


“Our robust program provides a risk-based approach to targeting and preventing failure of major pipes in an economically efficient manner.”


“This shows our commitment to delivering the best services at the lowest price for our customers as we avoid unnecessary maintenance costs by only spending on the pipes that need renewal.”
