Sunwater provides water supply services to agricultural, industrial, urban and rural users outside of south east Queensland.
Sunwater provides water services to irrigators operating within 22 bulk water supply schemes and eight distribution systems. In total, Sunwater manages approximately 50,000 water assets that service irrigators.
Irrigators account for the majority of Sunwater’s customers but represent a relatively lower share of Sunwater’s revenue.
Sunwater estimated costs related to irrigation at around $60 million in 2012–13, to be recovered through irrigation charges and government payments.
