The shareholders of the statutory authority are the council of Brisbane, Ipswich, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim, and Somerset councils.[1]

Function and activities[edit]

The authority was formed of 1 July 2010 when it assumed the functions of Brisbane Water, a government business enterprise that was owned and managed by the Brisbane City Council, together with the merging of water assets from the four other member local government authorities.[2] At the time, the A$4.3 bn merger was the largest water transaction and second largest infrastructure transaction in Australian history.[3]

QUU services over a quarter of Queensland’s total population.[4]
