Sydney Catchment Authority (SCA) is a Statutory Corporation representing the Crown, wholly owned by the NSW Government. Its primary role is to provide bulk water supply services for the benefit of Sydney and surrounding urban areas. This role and responsibility is prescribed by the Sydney Water Catchment Management Act 1998 (the Act) and the Operating Licence (Licence) issued to Sydney Catchment Authority by the Governor of New South Wales under Part 4 of the Act.
IPART is now required to review the Licence and provide recommendations for the granting of a new Licence to Government.
