Hunter Water is a State Owned Corporation (SOC) providing drinking water, wastewater, recycled water and some stormwater services to a population approaching 600,000 people in homes and businesses across the Lower Hunter.
Hunter Water was the first SOC to be proclaimed within New South Wales pursuant to the State Owned Corporations Act 1989. We are proud of our humble beginnings, starting in the 1880s when water was first delivered to Newcastle from a temporary pumping station on the Hunter River at Oakhampton to Newcastle No 1 Reservoir on Tyrrell Street. Today we operate under the Hunter Water Act 1991 (NSW).
We have 456 employees who are committed to delivering safe, affordable and reliable services to our community. Our employees work closely with contractors, stakeholders and the community to manage an asset base of more than $2.5 billion worth of water, wastewater and recycled water infrastructure, ensuring a sustainable water future for the Lower Hunter.
