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.
In 2022, Mackay Regional Council, as the reigning QLD champions, will be representing Queensland in the event to be held at the WIOA QLD Conference in Logan.
We are pleased to announce that in 2021 the maroons had 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, and wish the Mackay team all the best in the competition this year.
