Sustainable Urban Water Planning

Working Together to Ensure a Sustainable Water Future in the Hunter

Hunter Water aims to be a leader in sustainable water services and utility solutions for our customers. The organisation continues to make excellent progress towards this vision by providing superior customer service and managing the environment sustainably through operational excellence and a high performance culture.

The uncertain impacts of climate change, major population growth, securing our water supply and the long term introduction of a price on carbon will lead to many future challenges in the short and long term not only for our organisation but for the water industry as a whole. Sustainability needs to be considered in relation to environmental, social and economic considerations. The focus on energy efficiency, environmental protection, maximising recycling opportunities and sustainability is emphasised by the increasing complexity associated with the planning framework for our future water systems.

The Sustainable Cities of the Future program recognises the collaborative approach necessary to drive sustainable city planning, infrastructure and service delivery and to address the challenges faced by society into the future. Hunter Water is working to realise its vision and the aspirations of the Cities of the Future program through continuing to adopt innovative approaches to asset and resource management and working collaboratively with our customers and stakeholders.
