Busselton Water is a dynamic, contemporary water corporation which supplies drinking water to a growing population of more than 26,000 people across the wider Busselton area. We are committed to innovation, continuous business improvement and producing the highest quality drinking water in the most cost effective, safe and sustainable way.
Located approximately 220 kilometres south of Perth, in Western Australia, our South West region is a renowned tourist destination. The population in our community doubles to more than 50,000 people over the summer holiday season creating big challenges for our water supply.
Ours is one of the most rapidly growing regions in Western Australia and we are continuously investing in new services, new technology and new infrastructure to support this growth. We pride ourselves on caring for the environment as well as our involvement in and ongoing support for the communities we service.
Under our license, Busselton Water provides water infrastructure and services to an operating area covering almost 690,000 hectares. This includes the Busselton city centre, as well as nearby Port Geographe, Siesta Park, Vasse and Wonnerup, and bulk water supplies to Dunsborough.
In August 2014, our licence area was expanded to cover the Busselton-Capel and Blackwood groundwater areas including a two kilometre offshore zone. This licence is in place until 1 October 2021.
