For those interested in the light railway aspects of construction projects and operational tramways managed over the years by Sydney Water. The archive has been most helpful to Light Railways on occasion, the most recent being Ron Madden’s article on the Botany sewage operations.

This presentation will illustrate what is held in the Sydney Water / WaterNSW Historical Research Archive collection and will highlight how it tells the story of Sydney’s water supply from the Upper Nepean Scheme to Warragamba Dam. The basis of this collection is the many photographs taken by the Water Board’s Photography Section from 1893-1991.
