Water & Waste Water Service

Water Service

Coober Pedy produces and reticulates its own water.

The water is bought in from a bore 25km North East of Coober Pedy on the Oodnadatta road via a pipeline.

The water is then processed through a Desalination/Reverse Osmosis Plant.  The water quality is of an outstanding level.  This means that the water can be consumed without more consumer intervention.
