About Us

We are the principal supplier of water, wastewater and drainage services in Western Australia to hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses and farms, as well as providing bulk water to farms for irrigation.

Our services, projects and activities span over 2.6 million square kilometres. We have regional offices in Perth, Bunbury, Albany, Karratha, Geraldton, Northam and Kalgoorlie which allow our employees to provide a high level of professional expertise to customers. We have over 2,500 employees and participate in alliances to manage an asset base of over $15 billion in water supply, wastewater, drainage infrastructure and bulk water for irrigation. We are owned by the Western Australian Government and accountable to our sole shareholder, Minister for Water the Hon Dave Kelly MLA, for delivery of our services in a commercial manner. Most of our surplus is returned to the government as a dividend to contribute to the development of the state, with the remainder reinvested in capital works.

A standard Water Corporation connection is a 20mm metered service.

What happens when prequalification expires?
If your prequalification lapses, this could restrict your company’s ability to be engaged for future works. If you are currently engaged in works with us, this won’t impact your engagement but it’s advisable to maintain active prequalification status.
