The Leeton Water Supply System supplies Leeton township, Yanco and Wamoon. The supply of water is from the Murrumbidgee Irrigation system which is fed from the Murrumbidgee River via the 'Main Canal' from Berembed Weir, upstream from Narrandera. Water for Leeton is drawn from the canal system, and stored in an in-ground open earth reservoir, with a capacity of 240 megalitres.
Raw water is pumped from the in-ground open earth reservoir to the Leeton Water Treatment Plant in Acacia Avenue/Racecourse Road.
The treatment process in Leeton Water Treatment Plant consists of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, fluoridation and chlorination. The drinking water from the water treatment plant is pumped into the reticulation system as well as to four reservoirs (Chelmsford Place, Mountford Park, Central Park, and Wattle Hill) which is then reticulated to the properties in Leeton Township, Yanco and Wamoon.
