State Water Corporation
State Water Corporation (State Water) is New South Wales’ rural bulk water delivery business.
State Water owns, maintains, manages and operates major infrastructure to deliver bulk water to approximately 6,300 licensed water users on the state’s regulated rivers along with associated environmental flows. Historically, this has involved delivery of an average 5,500 GL annually, but in the recent extreme drought conditions, diversions have fallen to as low as 1,110 GL.
On a local level our Customer Field Officers work directly with customers to manage water accounts and improve water delivery efficiency. Our teams operate from regional centres throughout NSW and work closely with water users and Customer Service Committees to set asset management priorities and distribute water efficiently in regulated river valleys.
State Water manages an asset portfolio of $3.5 billion and is in the process of upgrading seven dams across the state, injecting more than a quarter of a billion dollars into regional community infrastructure over the next five years.
