We're about water

Melbourne Water is a statutory authority owned by the Victorian Government. It is our role to manage and protect Melbourne's major water resources on behalf of the community. It is an important role, one we take very seriously.

But we're not just about water

We're responsible for reliable sewerage, healthy waterways, and drainage and flood management. We have a solid history of foresight and best practice — and we help make Melbourne a fantastic place to live.
