How can I reduce my water usage?

Melburnians use millions of litres of water every day. As our population grows and our environment changes, it's important we make every drop count. 

Water quality

Find out what happens behind the scenes to ensure that each time you turn on the tap, you enjoy some of the best drinking water in the world. 

Where does my water come from?

A large proportion of your drinking water comes from catchments in protected or uninhabited mountain ash forests high in the Yarra Ranges which are reserved for harvesting water. 

Sewerage

As well as delivering safe, clean and reliable water to you, it’s also our job to take it away once you’ve used it.
