Greater Sydney faces a 13P shortfall in its water supply within 20 years if the city continues to grow at its current rate while climate change makes rainfall less predictable. A draft strategy on the city’s future water supply, released by the New South Wales government on Tuesday, says Sydney will need between 40 to 70 gigalitres extra within 20 years. The new strategy aims to provide guidance on how the gap can be bridged and recommends increased supply needs to come within 5-10 years, and again in 2040, and again in 2060.
