The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) commissioned GHD Pty Ltd to conduct a
review of Sydney Water Corporation’s (Sydney Water) environmental indicators as part of the end of
term review of Sydney Water’s 2000-2004 Operating Licence. The main objective of the consultancy was to recommend to the Tribunal a suite of environmental indicators and an associated reporting framework for inclusion in Sydney Water’s new Licence to apply from 1 January 2005. Sydney Water is currently committed to report on over 1000 sets of data, many of which are very technical and require expert assessment and so, are not readily interpreted by Sydney Water customers.
