Delivering quality, safe and reliable water and sewerage services to over 1.5 million customers every day is a pretty important job. You’d be amazed at what goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.

Bridging the gap between school and employment, our industry placements offer students insight into the water industry and future employment opportunities. Projects are based in our offices in Fortitude Valley or Ipswich, or at one of our Treatment Plants.
