About us

Water is essential for life

Seqwater is the Queensland Government Bulk Water Supply Authority. We are responsible for providing a safe, reliable and affordable bulk drinking water supply for 3.2 million people across South East Queensland. We also:

  • provide essential flood mitigation services
  • manage catchment health and offer community recreation facilities
  • provide water for irrigation to about 1,200 farmers across seven water supply schemes.

Our operations extend from Gympie to the New South Wales border, and west to the base of the Toowoomba ranges. This makes Seqwater one of Australia’s largest water businesses with the most geographically spread and diverse asset base of any capital city water authority.
