Who We Are
Melbourne Water is owned by the Victorian Government.
Day to day we manage Melbourne’s water supply catchments, treat and supply drinking and recycled water, remove and treat most of Melbourne’s sewage and manage waterways and major drainage systems in the Port Phillip and Westernport region.
We build strong relationships with our customers, stakeholders and suppliers in community, government and industry and care for the health and wellbeing of our people.
Sustainability is a core principle and central to all our operations.
We publish our yearly progress towards achieving our vision for a sustainable water future in our Annual report. We also publish annual environmental and public health compliance reports. All reports can be found in the publications section of this website.
Our vision is ‘Enhancing Life and Liveability’.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life and prosperity of the region by providing safe, secure and reliable water services, desirable urban spaces and thriving natural environments supported by healthy waterways and bays.
We can’t achieve our vision on our own. We need to work together with our customers and stakeholders to enhance liveability against a backdrop of population growth, increased urban density, a changing and variable climate, natural resource scarcity and community expectations for affordable services.
We have a range of policies that outline our obligations and commitments.
