NSW councils are on the front line of service delivery, providing the key amenities, services and infrastructure to their communities. This is against a backdrop of challenges, such as the need to balance environmental sustainability with rapid population growth, manage the risks associated with emerging contaminants, handling new waste streams, and mitigating the effects of climate change.
