||Toowoomba Regional Council
||Mt Kynock WTP
||Lake Fenton Scheme
||Goulburn Valley Water
Although competition is tough, this event is really a celebration of the fact that some of the best tasting and safest water in the world is produced right here in Australia by people who have a great passion for their jobs. The competition puts a spotlight on the friendly rivalry among water providers and their operators who continually produce high quality, safe, drinking water for their communities.
Quotes attributable to WIOA – Chief Operations Officer, Craig Mathisen
“No one writes about high-quality drinking water that everyone drinks 365 days a year and no one gets sick from, so WIOA has decided to try and shed some light on what has been for too long, a bit of a hidden industry. We see the operators of the facilities as people who work in public health who daily put quality food on the table of our communities around the country.”
“Generally, if you ask people on the street where their water comes from, they’ll just say it’s from the tap. But there’s a lot that happens to that water before it gets there, and this is our way to honor the hard work of those people who ensure the best water coming from the tap every day.”
