Council owns and operates its own water supply system, providing dual water systems (filtered and unfiltered) to the urban areas of Barooga, Berrigan and Finley. Tocumwal is supplied with only filtered water. Raw water is sourced from Murray River, Mulwala Canal and Berrigan Channel.
Council staff manages and monitors water treatment plants through SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and use industry standard testing methodology to ensure water meets or exceeds the drinking water standards.
Council has recently completed implementation of Smart Water Metering project. This helps in reading of water meters remotely and makes the water billing process efficient.
