City West Water

City West WaterIn early 1995, Melbourne's water and sewerage services began operating as three separate service providers - City West Water, South East Water and Yarra Valley Water, serviced by one wholesaler, Melbourne Water Corporation. This move was designed to create a more efficient, competitive retail industry and all the enterprises remain Victorian-government owned.

Keith Green, Des Horton receiving supporters award for City West WaterCity West Water provides water, sewage and trade waste services to Melbourne's CBD, inner and western suburbs. As a retail water business, City West Water purchases water at wholesale cost from Melbourne Water Corporation to provide to its customers. City West Water also pays Melbourne Water Corporation for the treatment of sewage and trade waste. Melbourne Water treats the majority of sewage which City West Water collects via its sewerage mains, although City West Water has one treatment plant at Altona.

City West Water plays an integral role in managing precious water resources for the community - now as well as for future generations. City West Water has environmental sustainability as one of its core business goals and as an organisation, it recognises, encourages and promotes environmental initiatives and achievements in Inner and Western Melbourne. This focus is demonstrated through the range of environmental initiatives spearheaded by its Service Sustainability Group.

These include:

  • Community Environment / Sustainability Awards
  • Cleaner production partnerships
  • Enviro Partnerships
  • Waste minimisation programs
  • Water recycling initiatives
  • Water conservation education
