Who are we?

Icon Water

Icon Water Limited is an unlisted public company owned by the ACT Government.

Icon Water owns and manages the assets and operation of water and sewerage services to the ACT and bulk water to Queanbeyan. Icon Water also has an investment in the ACT’s energy distributor and retailer ActewAGL, through a joint venture of two partnerships with each of Jemena Limited and AGL Energy Limited.

Icon Water is unique in Australia as it is a water and sewerage business that also manages an investment in electricity and gas networks through partnerships with private companies.

In 2000, ActewAGL was formed as Australia’s first multi-utility public-private partnership, bringing together the management of electricity, water and gas services. At this time, the ACT Government decided to retain ownership only of the water assets with ACTEW Corporation and outsourced the water operations and maintenance services to ActewAGL.
