Welcome to Lower Burdekin Water

Lower Burdekin Water is a locally managed organisation that delivers sustainable water services for the prosperity of agriculture, industry, community and environment within the Burdekin region. Our groundwater area is considered the largest replenished coastal aquifer in Australia and it is the purpose of LBW to manage the groundwater system under our control in an environmentally and economically sustainable way, recognising that the economic viability of industry dependent on the resource is the essential foundation of sustainable environmental management. Recognising also that the system under our control is a modified environment, the management focus being on the development of a sustainable new balance of modified and pristine values.
