To ensure a consistent, high quality water supply we currently operate 36 water treatment plants across the region.
The Mt Crosby East Bank and West Bank water treatment plants are the primary source of drinking water for the greater Brisbane and Ipswich areas, having the greatest production capacity. Molendinar and Mudgeeraba on the Gold Coast, North Pine to the north of Brisbane, and Landers Shute on the Sunshine Coast are the other main treatment plants for the region.
Our interconnected supply network allows us to move water from these plants across the region to where it is needed most. This ensures a consistency of supply if one part of the network is affected by weather, maintenance or other issues.
We also manage climate-resilient sources of water: the Gold Coast Desalination Plant and the Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme. These assets ensure that South East Queensland will always have a safe, secure source of water – rain, hail or shine.
