Seeing the future of Sydney's water needs

Sydney Catchment Authority predicts water requirements using a cloud computing solution from Telstra.

Seeing the future of Sydney's water needs

Predicting Sydney’s long-term water requirements is a critical and highly complex task for the Sydney Catchment Authority. It requires a combination of weather, rainfall, population data and highly complex algorithms.

These complex computing needs are now met by a Telstra cloud computing system, which can be dialled up and down as needed, making it ideal for projects with periodical high demand.

Sydney’s long-term water needs can now be predicted accurately decades into the future.

“The Sydney Catchment Authority’s role is to manage and protect more than 16,000 square kilometres of drinking water catchments across greater Sydney. They need to plan for Sydney’s water supply, spanning many decades into the future – ensuring water sustainability.”

- Fiona Smith – Executive General Manager, Sydney Catchment Authority
