The Water and Sewerage Sector

Reforms to the sector are designed to achieve major long-term improvements in Tasmania's water and sewerage services and infrastructure, through a collaborative approach with local Government.

The Water and Sewerage Industry Act 2008 and the Water and Sewerage Corporations Act 2008 were passed by the Tasmanian Parliament in 2008. This legislation removed the responsibility for water and sewerage provision from local Councils and vested it in three regional water and sewerage corporations.  These have now been amalgamated to form TasWater, which came into being on 1 July 2013.
