Moree Plains Shire Council operates a number of water treatment plants to ensure levels of service are met for the Moree Plains community.
Getting the water from the water treatment plants to your taps requires extensive infrastructure, including reservoirs, pump stations and water mains and to ensure this system continues to meet the needs of the Moree Plains now and into the future, Council conducts regular maintenance and repairs, planned upgrades and capital works.
Collectively, the treatment plants deliver approximately 3178 mega litres of drinking water each year for the Shire. In addition, another 34mega litres (approximately) is supplied to residents as untreated water.

All Council owned reservoirs and water pump stations are generally not open to the public.
Most reservoirs sites are fenced with ladders and access hatches remaining locked to prevent contamination of the water supply.
No members of public are permitted to in any way climb or traverse to the top of reservoirs without Council’s knowledge or approval. Council has taken all precautions to prevent unauthorised access to reservoir rooves and any person(s) attempting to gain access are trespassing. Any warning signs should also be noted and obeyed on any of these sites for the public’s safety. Any vandalising including graffiti of reservoirs or pump station buildings will be a matter for the police and Council will pursue offenders.
