Our sustainable water community is growing
We are working with the City of Sydney to deliver sustainability and resilience beyond Green Square Town Centre, through world-leading local sustainable water and energy networks available to developers.
Green Square Water will become Green Square Plus, a new local multi-utility providing recycled water, drinking water, wastewater and trade waste services to all new residential, commercial, retail and government assets and parks across the precinct. Green Square Plus will also provide energy services – embedded networks and local renewable generation.Find out more.

Also, at Flow, we believe that our customers should be Waterwise even when they have access to recycled water.
Below we recommend some tips to ensure you are Waterwise with recycled water as summer kicks in.
- Check your taps for leaks and replace the washers as soon as they begin to drip.
- Using the half flash button on a dual flush toilet will save you up to five litres per flush. You could end up saving thousands of litres per year.
- Avoid watering your garden etc. between 10 am and 4 pm when evaporation is high. Maybe also use a watering can or a trigger nozzle on a hose, so you hit the areas that need it.
- You can add compost to your garden to help the soil store water, which will save you watering the garden regularly.
Recycled water must not be used in swimming pools or spas.
This is not an approved use for recycled water and owners of pools and spas are responsible for ensuring that only drinking water is used for this purpose.
