Water performance reports

Water and sewerage services play an important role in our health and wellbeing.

These services are regulated by several departments, including the:

  • Department of Resources
  • Department of Health
  • Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs
  • Department of Environment and Science.

Key performance indicators

The Department of Resources tracks the performance of water and sewerage service providers through Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

These KPIs give a community an overview of the general state of their water and sewerage infrastructure and services. This includes:

  • water security
  • financial status
  • customer engagement and;
  • environmental performance.

External factors affecting performance

Our performance can be influenced by a number of 'external' factors, including:

  • Climate – rainfall patterns, evaporation and temperature.
  • Geography – geology (the type of soil) and topography of the region.
  • Size – the number of people connected and the size of the area being serviced.
  • Asset age – old assets may need more maintenance/repairs and may be less efficient.
  • Location – Queensland is a big state with communities ranging from urban cities and towns to rural, semi-rural and remote.
  • Services provided – water treatment.
  • Water source – water from a river, dam or bore may need different treatment. Distance to supply affects pumping and infrastructure costs.
  • Regulation – we need to achieve strict water quality standards through water and sewerage treatment.

The City makes our Annual Water and Sewerage Services Performance Reports available as part of our requirements.
