Why water is key to liveability\r\n

We all want to live in cool, green and clean spaces, and this wouldn't be possible without water. Water is at the heart of the places where we love to live and play. We couldn't imagine a world without it. How we value water connects us with our environment and each other.

Changing values\r\n

As Sydney has grown over time, our value of water in the environment has changed.
\r\n

\r\n

Creeks and rivers that were once natural sources of clean water may have been turned into:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • canals for transport of goods and people
  • \r\n
  • underground sewers redirected around houses and industry
  • \r\n
  • stormwater ways to help reduce the impact of flooding.
  • \r\n
\r\n

Today, with improving technologies to manage water, we value creeks and rivers differently. We want them to:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • be a place for recreation 
  • \r\n
  • look like natural environments
  • \r\n
  • provide habitat for animals.
  • \r\n
\r\n

Alexandra Canal is a great example of how our values and uses of waterways have changed over time. Watch this video about restoring the Alexandra Canal. Learn more about our current projects.

变化的值

随着悉尼的发展,我们对环境中水的价值也发生了变化。

曾经是清洁水源的小溪和河流可能已经变成:

  • 运输货物和人员的运河
  • 地下下水道在房屋和工业周围改道
  • 雨水的方法有助于减少洪水的影响。

今天,随着水资源管理技术的不断改进,我们对小溪和河流的评价也有所不同。我们希望他们:

  • 成为一个娱乐的地方
  • 看起来像自然环境
  • 为动物提供栖息地。

亚历山德拉运河是一个很好的例子,说明了我们对水道的价值观和使用是如何随着时间而改变的。观看这段视频修复亚历山德拉运河.了解更多有关我们当前的项目

Water connecting us to a place
\r\n\r\n

Did you know that about 85% of Australians live within 50 kilometres of our coastline? People can feel a connection to where they live through water.

\r\n

Being near water, on the water or in the water can make many people feel relaxed, calm and connected to the natural environment. How do you feel when you're near water?

\r\n

In Indigenous cultures, the way the water shaped the environment and brings life is important. For thousands of years Aboriginal people have lived with respect for nature and the environment, including water, because all of nature is sacred. Read the Dreamtime story of the Illawarra and the five islands.

\r\n
    \r\n
  • Songkran – This festival in Thailand, originally a Hindu celebration, is an enormous water-fight party during the hottest time of the year.
  • \r\n
  • Vardavar – Celebrated in Armenia, this water festival came from both Christian and pagan backgrounds. People go onto the streets and spray one another with water.

  • Sapporo Snow Festival – This Japanese festival is the largest snow and ice festival in the world. It features carvings made from gigantic blocks of ice.
  • \r\n
  • Loy Krathong – People gather around lakes, rivers and canals to pay respects to the goddess of water by releasing beautiful lotus-shaped rafts decorated with candles, incense and flowers onto the water.

Liveability for quality of life\r\n"}}" id="T4" class="cmp-text">

生活品质的宜居性

How liveable a place is can indicate the quality of life of the people who live there.

\r\n

Liveable cities have access to clean, safe drinking water and the removal of wastewater (sanitation). That means our health and wellbeing are being cared for in the places we live.

\r\n

Access to services and facilities like water, power, communications, transport, healthcare and education provides choices in our lives. For example:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • how healthy you are
  • \r\n
  • what type of recreation you can participate in
  • \r\n
  • how far you can go in your education
  • \r\n
  • what your employment opportunities are.

Water for hygiene\r\n

Clean water keeps us healthy and helps us manage our personal hygiene.

\r\n

Using water and soap to clean your hands is essential to help stop the spread of infectious diseases. See this guide from NSW Health to see how.

\r\n

Water also helps us with sanitation, such as flushing toilets. Did you know that the invention of toilets helped to save lives? See How the toilet changed history.

\r\n

When you flush your toilet your used water is removed, cleaned and returned to the environment or reused safely. This is called wastewater treatment.

Water for wellbeing
\r\n\r\n

Have you thought about how access to water contributes to the wellbeing of a community?

\r\n

Some people don't have easy access to water, especially if they don't have a home. How will their dignity, health and hygiene be affected?

\r\n

There are many places in the world where people don't have good access to clean water and proper sanitation. In fact, about half the world's population doesn't have access to a toilet. Imagine if you didn’t.

The cost of water
\r\n\r\n

It costs money to make sure there's high quality, safe water every time you turn on the tap.

\r\n

There's a lot to think about when setting prices for water and there are different prices for your home and businesses. One litre of Sydney tap water costs less than one cent.

\r\n

You might like to compare our prices with some other countries, like Singaporeand Thames Water in the United Kingdom. Remember to convert to Australian dollars!

\r\n

Bottled water can be 1,800 times more expensive than tap water. Although it's more expensive, it's not necessarily any better for us or the environment. Tap water versus bottled water (210KB).

Future costs of water
\r\n\r\n

When we plan for access to water in the future, we need to think about the number of people who will be living in Sydney, where they live and the amount of water available.

\r\n

Sydney relies on rainfall being collected in dams for its water supply, but rainfall can be unreliable.

\r\n

To manage future water scarcity, we need to conserve water and look to other water sources.

\r\n

As our urban environment grows, there are things we can do to manage stormwater sensitively and do more water recycling to keep water available and affordable for all.
