You might not think of us very often, but we’re a part of your life dozens of times a day.
Every time you turn on a tap or flush a toilet or wash the dishes or make a cup of coffee or have a shower or do your laundry, we’re there.
Our role is to bring you high quality water and take wastewater away every day – and we’re working 24/7 to make that happen. It means fixing problems quickly. It means providing efficient and reliable sewerage and trade waste services. It means finding better ways for us to use water, and helping you understand how you can save water, too – so we can make sure there’ll be enough for everyone in the future.
We manage and maintain the water and sewerage networks – the pipes, pumping stations, valves and some water recycling plants that bring water to you and take waste away.
We buy our fresh drinking water from the government’s water wholesaler, Melbourne Water, that manages the water catchments (the dams) and treats the water to a high standard.
