Water Corporation wishes to congratulate its former Chief Executive Officer Mrs Sue Murphy who today received an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for distinguished service to the natural resources sector in Western Australia, and to engineering.

“Sue led the Water Corporation through a complex time of declining rainfall and has set a course for securing Perth’s water future for the long term.


“Thank you Sue we are all very proud.”
