Water Sources in WA


Category: General

Ever wondered where your water comes from??

Potable water in WA is obtained from a combination of sources including:

  • Desalination;
  • Dams;
  • Groundwater; and
  • Recycled Water.

If you live in the Perth Region and have access to Scheme Water then you can check out Water Corporations Sources page here. If you are in Busso, here is a resource also.

If you are in a rural area, then you most probably self reliant on Groundwater or commonly known as Bore Water.  If you have specific questions regarding your Bore Water, we suggest you jump onto the Department of Water and Environmental Regulations FAQ’s page here.
