Big business operations have the most to gain by conserving water. That’s why Sydney Water’s Water Efficiency Grant pilot program is targeting medium to large business customers.

If your business operates in more than one site, you can apply for each site.

A Water Efficiency Grant can provide an economical way for your business to reach its environmental sustainability targets.

Grant Program Structure

The grant program consists of two parts:

Part 1: Undertake either:

  • A water efficiency audit
  • An agreed activity – feasibility studies, detailed design including water reuse and treatment studies, benchmarking and key performance indicator (KPI) investigations, or cooling tower audits

Part 2: Implement the recommendations from the water efficiency audit you nominated for Part 1


The grant will partly cover the cost of the water conservation audit or the activity you nominate in Part 1. For Part 2, Sydney Water will also partly fund implementing the recommendations from Part 1. Your business will receive up to 50% of the quoted cost provided by an eligible service provider capped at the amount outlined in the Water Efficiency Grant Guidelines.

If you receive a grant funding for Part 1, you will be expected to implement the recommendations that Sydney Water approve in Part 2.
