Water Tanks – Hawkesbury
The City of Hawkesbury is a local government area of New South Wales, Australia, part of which is at the fringe of the Sydney metropolitan area, about 50 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district. Hawkesbury City is named after the Hawkesbury River.
Until recently, the City of Hawkesbury remained largely rural, but urban expansion within Sydney has since transformed the southern part of the area into dormitory suburbs; the lack of quality roads and public transport is a major local issue. The northern part of the local government area still contains some farmlands, as well as a vast area of national park, which will remain untouched due to the inaccessible terrain. At the 2011 Census, there were 62,353 people in the Hawkesbury local government area. Hawkesbury City is named after the Hawkesbury River, which was named after the Baron of Hawkesbury by Governor Philip in 1789. The Aboriginal name for the river is Deerubbin.
Hawkesbury City is a dynamic place. Within its boundaries there are people who were born in more that 45 different countries and who speak more than 30 different languages. In the last four decades the population has more than doubled. Over the next two decades the population will continue to increase – by 2019 it is estimated that almost 83,000 people will be living in the Hawkesbury. This population increase will inevitably put increasing pressure on the local water supply and resources.
