The Department of Water was the government agency that looks after all Western Australia's water. The Department managed the availability and quality of water, licensing the tap water we drink, the water that has been used to grow the food we eat, and the water used by mining and industry for state development. On 1 July 2017 the Department of Water amalgamated with the Department of Environmental Regulation and the Office of the Environmental Protection Agency to form the new Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.
