Yarra Valley Water employs more than 800 people – customer service professionals, communications practitioners, engineers, technicians, accountants, economists, IT specialists, managers and more. Our award-winning hybrid workplace strategy means people work flexibly, in our head office at Mitcham and at home or in treatment plants and out in the field.
Partner companies deliver many of our services, including construction and maintenance activities, meter reading, laboratory services, legal services and facilities management.
Our service area covers approximately 4,000 square kilometres stretching from Wallan in the north to Warburton in the east. We own and maintain over 20,000 kilometres of water and sewer mains.
The Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action has produced a map that lets you check if you're in our service area.
The regulatory environment
Effective from 1 July 2012, Yarra Valley Water became a corporation under the Water Act 1989. We are subject to regulation by the Essential Services Commission and make payments to the Victorian Government equivalent to the income tax and sales tax that would be payable if the Corporation was not a statutory corporation.
