Parramatta. Sydney Water wins award

Sydney Water, headquartered in Parramatta, has been part of a project team which this week won a 2012 NSW Government Green Globe Award for exploring the viability of capturing and reusing urine from urban toilets as an agricultural fertiliser. The “sustainable sanitation project” was led by University of Technology, Sydney’s Institute for Sustainable Futures, and was the first trial of a urine diversion (UD) system in an Australian institutional setting. It examined the barriers and opportunities for urine capture and reuse.
