The Sydney area is currently undergoing significant expansion. At the same time, the effects of climate change are already being felt in Australia, with drought driving the need to provide water services through an integrated and sustainable approach.

The type of development that presents the greatest challenges and opportunities for water service is infill growth. In the Botany Infill Growth Area in Sydney, rapid commercial and residential development is occurring. As developers progressed with their plans, Sydney Water Corporation (SWC) needed to develop an integrated strategy for providing water, sewer, and stormwater services to the area. This paper will outline the steps SWC undertook in meeting this challenge. SWC developed an integrated servicing strategy that is easily implemented, incorporates stakeholder values, and provides a road map for guiding development for the Botany infill area. This will serve as a model for other growth areas in Sydney.
