Sustainable water management

With nearly 37 million passengers using Sydney Airport in 2012, the airport is one of NSW’s biggest water users.

Major uses include:

  • Restroom and toilet facilities within the terminals
  • Cooling towers (for air-conditioning)
  • Construction and maintenance activities
  • Vehicle washing facilities.

Sustainable water use and security of water supply are a priority for Sydney Airport, which is committed to securing alternative non-potable water supplies where feasible.
