The way we work

We are the principal supplier of water, wastewater and drainage services in Western Australia to hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses and farms, as well as providing bulk water to farms for irrigation.

Our services, projects and activities span over 2.6 million square kilometres. We have regional offices in Perth, Bunbury, Albany, Karratha, Geraldton, Northam and Kalgoorlie which allow our employees to provide a high level of professional expertise to customers.

We have over 3,000 employees and participate in alliances to manage an asset base of over $15 billion in water supply, wastewater, drainage infrastructure and bulk water for irrigation.

We are owned by the Western Australian Government and accountable to our sole shareholder, Minister for Water the Hon Mia Davies MLA, for delivery of our services in a commercial manner. Most of our surplus is returned to the government as a dividend to contribute to the development of the state, with the remainder reinvested in capital works.

Guided by our values, it is our people who enable us to deliver on our Purpose and Vision.
