Where does your water come from?
Seqwater, the State Government bulk water supply authority, is responsible for capturing, storing, treating and transporting bulk water for the region. Seqwater supplies water from its dams, weirs and water treatment plants.
Drinking water contains naturally occurring minerals such as calcium, sodium and magnesium. The levels of these minerals can vary causing very slight differences in taste, odour and colour. The amount of calcium and magnesium in water also determines the softness or hardness of it.
