Water of Origin

Great footy, great water – excellent year to be a Queenslander!

It’s been a great year for Queenslanders with the iconic win over NSW in the State of Origin and the knowledge that our water tastes great.
Congratulations to 2014 taste test winner, Richmond Shire Council, who laid claim to the top drop title when delegates at the WIOA Conference gave its sample top scores in the 2015 Ixom Water of Origin taste test, beating the 2015 NSW taste test winner, Orange City Council.
We’re now honing in on the 2015 Ixom Best of the Best Queensland Water Taste Test winner with five of the six regional finals decided. The 2015 regional finalists to date are:
Central Queensland Livingstone Shire Council Woodbury WTP
Far North Queensland Cairns Regional Council Mountain View WTP
North Queensland Townsville City Council Ross River Scheme
West Queensland Barcaldine Regional Council Barcaldine Scheme
South West Queensland Balonne Shire Council Dirribandi Scheme
The South East Queensland event is scheduled for the Gold Coast on 20 August after which the six regional winners will battle it out at the grand final in Maroochydore on 5 November. Good luck to all, and may the best water win!
