Water services in the region
Melbourne Water is the waterway management authority in the Port Phillip and Western Port region. They manage and protect the region’s major water resources, including water storage reservoirs, drinking water, and waterways. This is a different to the other catchment management regions of Victoria, where the Catchment Management Authorities are also the waterway management authorities.
Water retail companies manage the water and sewerage services that bring water to you and take waste away. They purchase fresh drinking water from Melbourne Water to supply to you, then transfer sewage back into Melbourne Water’s system for treatment.
