Wastewater

Townsville Water is responsible for providing wastewater services to the Townsville area.

As a business unit of Townsville City Council, Townsville Water operates the sewerage network that collects, transports, treats and disposes of wastewater (sewage) from homes and businesses in the city.

Approximately 17 billion litres of wastewater is collected and treated each year through a 1200 kilometre network of sewerage mains, 190 pumping stations and six wastewater treatment plants.

Our plants use state-of-the-art wastewater treatment processes that meet strict environmental and public health standards. The biosolids produced in these processes are re-used in agriculture, providing a welcome nutrient boost for graziers and farmers.

Our staff work within the community to access and maintain our sewerage system and provide a crucial customer service role in Townsville.
