Protect Our Water Alliance was formed in early 2019 in response to the ongoing mining underneath Sydney's Water Catchment. 

Located in Wollongong, New South Wales, POWA is affiliated with grassroots groups and environmental organisations across the Illawarra, Southern Highlands, and Greater Sydney regions. 

Here are all of the POWA affiliate groups - click on each logo to find out more about each group.


POWA recognises that the traditional owners of the regions spanning Sydney's water catchment have never ceded sovereignty of their lands and waters.
