Ever stopped to think about how water gets to your tap?
The network of pipes delivering water to Perth, the Goldfields and Agricultural region and some parts of the South West is called The Integrated Water Supply Scheme (IWSS), and it’s the largest supply scheme we manage. It’s big…really big!
This network supplies over 363 billion litres of drinking water to more than 2 million people through 34,678 km of water pipes!
And it doesn’t end there because we then take away all of your used water too.
Wastewater mostly comes from sinks, showers and washing machines and we take away almost 450 million litres of it every day. Your used water enters 17,051 km of wastewater pipes before getting treated at a wastewater treatment plant.
