As a City within a World Heritage Area, we seek to be a leader in sustainable water management. To work towards this goal, Council developed a Water Sensitive Blue Mountains Strategic Plan, in collaboration with all sections of Council, the community, WaterNSW, the SPLASH Network and the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities.

The Plan aims to deliver an integrated water management approach, based on the water sensitive principles of water efficiency, water harvesting and reuse, best practice stormwater management and an engaged, water-literate community. The Plan was adopted by the Council in September 2019.
