Yarra Valley Water
Homeware and Appliances - Mitcham, VIC
We are the largest of Melbourne’s three water corporations providing water supply and sanitation services to over 1.7 million people and over 50,000 businesses in the northern and eastern suburbs.
Our activities are overseen by an independent Board of Directors appointed by the State Government of Victoria.
We buy bulk water from Melbourne Water which is mostly harvested from protected mountain catchments. We are also responsible for taking away sewage for treatment. Most of the sewage is transferred to Melbourne Water's Eastern or Western treatment plants. The balance is treated at our nine regional plants, several of which produce recycled water for use in new homes or for the irrigation of sportsfields or open space.
Our district covers approximately 4,000 square kilometres from as far north as Wallan and extending to Warburton in the east. We own and maintain over 9,000 kms of water mains and over 9,000 kms of sewer mains.
Our head office is situated in Mitcham and we employ around 592 staff (530 FTE).
