The Board holds a 25-year licence to provide quality drinking water to over 26,000 customers in the townsite of Busselton and its close environs such as Port Geographe, Siesta Park, Vasse and Wonnerup (excludes Dunsborough).
As a sought after sea-change destination the population can increase significantly during weekends and holiday periods.

The Board holds an Operating Licence issued by the Water Services Planning Branch Policy under the Water Services Coordination Act 1995. The licence is valid until 1 October 2021. Details of the area covered are recorded on Plan OWR-0A-085/2B.
