Water sources used by the Australian poultry industry are varied, and include town water, underground water, surface water and rain water. Whatever the source, water provided to poultry farms must be free from microbial contamination that could cause disease
in poultry, or lead to food safety issues. This report describes the water sources most commonly used by the Australian poultry industry, and water sanitation systems applicable for use on commercial poultry farms.
