Water Maps

The Queensland Bottled Water Industry’s Extraction Map

Responsible use of one of the State’s most precious resources, water, must be the top priority for all users of groundwater be that households, agriculture or industries including the bottled water sector. Ensuring the long-term health of each and every water source is in all stakeholders’ interests, and the bottled water industry in Queensland is committed to world class standards of sustainability and responsible management of the water it uses.

The interactive Queensland bottled water industry extraction map is an initiative of the Australian Beverages Council and the Queensland Government’s Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy. It is designed to provide interested stakeholders with a range of relevant information relating to water extracted for commercial water bottling purposes.
