Water services – what are we talking about?
The pipes, facilities, services and processes used to treat, transport, and discharge:
Drinking water - water that flows from our taps, from water sources and council supply networks.
Wastewater - water that has been used for cooking, bathing, washing or flushing our toilets.
Stormwater - rainwater that is collected in pipes, drains, green infrastructure or overland flow paths to manage flooding and pollution of streams, rivers and coastal waters.
