On 1 July 2021, City West Water and Western Water will integrate to form a new water corporation - Greater Western Water.
Greater Western Water will deliver water services across Melbourne’s CBD, inner and north-west suburbs, through the Melton and Sunbury growth corridors, to Bacchus Marsh and Macedon Ranges.
Over the next 30 years, Melbourne’s west is expected to double in population.
This rapid growth across our two neighbouring service areas has meant we have needed to look at new ways of doing things to ensure high-quality, affordable and secure water services well into the future.
It’s not a decision we’ve made lightly
We have worked together to identify the best solution, which will lead to better service, more secure water availability and put downward pressure on costs for the fast-growing outer-western region.
It’s an exciting step forward to ensure we can meet the needs of everyone living and working in the diverse and vibrant communities of our city and the west, as well as the growing demand for new infrastructure and services.
Our new name will be Greater Western Water
Our name will change to Greater Western Water from 1 July.
We’ll support our people and customers to smoothly transition into one organisation and will continue to form partnerships with our community.
More information and next steps
Regular updates will be available online as we move towards 1 July.
