Water of Origin

The success of the Queensland Taste Tests sparked a wider competition run by the Water Industry Operators Association (WIOA) where Queensland and NSW taste test winners battle it out in the annual Water of Origin event. 

We are pleased to announce that in 2021 the maroons have taken back the title from the blues with Livingstone Shire Council announced as Water of Origin Champion.

We congratulate Livingstone Shire Council and their hard working operators.
