Yarra Valley Water

About Us

Yarra Valley Water is Melbourne’s largest retail water utility, providing essential water and sanitation services to more than 1.8 million people and over 50,000 businesses. Our service area covers most of Melbourne’s northern and eastern suburbs, from Wallan in the north to Warburton in the east, across approximately 4,000 square kilometres.

We buy water from Melbourne Water to distribute to our customers. We are also responsible for removing and treating sewage. Most sewage is transferred to Melbourne Water’s Eastern or Western Treatment Plants, while the rest is treated at our nine regional plants, several of which produce recycled water for use in homes, sports fields and public spaces.

Our purpose is to provide exemplary water and sanitation services that contribute to the health and wellbeing of current and future generations. This purpose sets out our commitment to a sustainable future.

Our modern newly renovated offices in Mitcham feature ergonomic furniture, showers and change rooms, an onsite cafeteria, free parking, bike shed, and green spaces including barbecues and outdoor seating. Mitcham is approximately 29km from Melbourne’s CBD and has good transport links with train and bus services.
