The City's role in delivering water to the Gold Coast

Although the City is the water and sewerage service provider, the State Government owns the bulk water supply. This includes the Hinze Dam and Tugun Desalination Plant. The State Government sets the wholesale price that the City pays for water, which is passed on to customers.

The State Government owns the drinking (potable) water treatment plants.
