Wide Bay Water Corporation provides safe, reliable, efficient water and wastewater services to residents and businesses on the Fraser Coast.
Catering to a population of some 93,000 people, our service area covers Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Tiaro, Torbanlea, Howard, Burrum Heads and Aldershot.
The region’s water network includes Lake Lenthall, Cassava Dam, two weirs on the Burrum River and Teddington Weir on Tinana Creek. Water is purified at three treatment plants and wastewater is treated at seven treatment plants.
The Corporation employs more than 200 people.
WBWC is Queensland’s first local government-owned water corporation and demonstrates the benefits of a dynamic and results-driven organisation.
By using a quality approach to water supply, sewerage, water harvesting and reuse systems, we’ve been highly successful in addressing customer needs within our core business area.
WBWC also owns and operates WetSide Water Education Park which is supplied by recycled stormwater.
Additionally, we have an industry-leading wastewater re-use scheme for the irrigation of canefields, turf farms and our own hardwood plantations (500 hectares and growing). By recycling treated wastewater we are protecting marine environments from high nutrient levels and simultaneously putting them to good use on land.
