Environmental constraints on urban growth led the Sydney Water Corporation (Sydney Water) to implement an integrated water servicing strategy that included the piped supply of recycled water to 36,000 new residential homes. Key lessons from introducing recycled water to residential homes on such a scale are presented in the areas of managing public health risk, system design, water conservation and community acceptance. The experience of developing Australia's largest residential recycling scheme informs consideration of dual reticulation as an option in integrated water resource management.
