The water supply for the NPA is sourced from the Jardine River. Water is pumped 15 kilometres to the treatment plant in Bamaga where it is filtered and disinfected (chlorinated). Once the water is safe for consumption it is pumped to reservoirs at each community and then gravity fed to the community users.
The water treatment plant has the capacity to produce 5.5 megalitres of water per day.
