Local recycled water systems have the potential to meet many of the opportunities and challenges currently faced by the urban water industry. Recently there has been an increased installation of local recycled water in Sydney, however, there is a lack of agreement as to their overall value. This paper examines the evolution of local recycled water investment in Sydney to clearly identify what is driving (or limiting) investment. In doing so, it explains the nature and complexity of the interactions between the social, environmental and institutional context, and the decision to invest in distributed recycled water systems, particularly the impact on the evaluation of costs and benefits.
