Melbourne’s water supply catchments include 163,000 hectares of forest, including both protected and open catchments.
Why our water tastes great
Over half of the water supplied to Greater Melbourne is sourced from protected catchments. That’s one of the reasons why our water tastes so good and needs minimal treatment.
