What is the Treated Water Quality in my area?
Whitsunday Regional Council provides drinking (potable) water to customers in 4 schemes – Proserpine, Coastal, Bowen and Collinsville, through a separate business unit – Whitsunday Water.
Proserpine Scheme services Proserpine and Mt Julian communities.
Coastal Scheme services Cannonvale, Airlie Beach, Jubilee Pocket and Shute Harbour communities.
Bowen scheme services Bowen, Brisk Bay and Merinda communities.
Collinsville Scheme services Collinsville and Scottville communities.
Each scheme consists of a Water Treatment Plant, a series of storage reservoirs and a distribution network. As each Water Treatment Plant is different, the water quality in each scheme is slightly different, although all within the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. The variability of water quality within the scheme (e.g. between Cannonvale and Jubilee Pocket) is minimal. The links above contain a summary of water quality in your scheme.
