Though it is generally flat and low lying Andros is actually the fifth largest island in the wider Caribbean area. Despite its size Andros has a very small population and wonderful environmental features. With miles and miles of pine forest, the world’s largest concentration of untouched blue holes, a complex network of creeks, lakes, and marshes, the second largest coral reef in the western hemisphere, Andros is also the Bahamian island that is best endowed with freshwater. Saline creeks meander across the island from coast to coast separating North Andros, from Wood Cay, Mangrove Cay and South Andros. The W&SC provides water supplies to all communities in North Andros, and Mangrove Cay, and most of South Andros, using the natural resource, and for 35 years shipped water to New Providence where natural resources were lacking. The main operational base in Andros is located in Nicholl’s Town with substations in Fresh Creek, and the Kemp’s Bay complex.

Beautiful Eleuthera consists of rolling hills and valleys interspersed with shallow lakes and ponds and large areas of natural coppice. The coast lines alternate from steep rocky cliffs to amazing beaches. This island has had a fascinating history which includes that of the Eleutherian Adventurers and the establishment of the first Republic in the New World. Offshore islands like Harbour Island, Spanish Wells, and Royal Island each have their own aspects of historical interest. The W&SC provides water to all sectors of the island, mostly from desalination sources though it is still using the Bogue Wellfield in the north as a natural source of supply. Tarpum Bay's desalination facility is unique in that it is expected to be powered predominantly by wind energy starting in 2014. If successful, renewable energy could be used at other facilities on the island and elsewhere in The Bahamas. There are offices located in the main settlements like Governor’s Harbour, Rock Sound, Dunmore Town, and Spanish Wells.

The Atlantic coastline of Long Island is spectacular and provides a wonderful contrast to the more tranquil bays and coves on the west side. Being a long thin island with hilly ridges extending from the north all the way to the south, Long Island is not well endowed with freshwater and consequently the W&SC provides most of the water supplied using a desalination plant located in the Mangrove Bush area. There is a small groundwater supply in Simms but this is due to be replaced by another desalination plant. At present the central Long Island supply extends from Greys down to Turtle Cove in the south but plans are in place to extend this system to Salt Pond in the north and to Clarence Town in the south. The W&SC also provides a tanker service which delivers water to all sectors of the island. Because Long Island has a low rainfall the tanker service is kept very busy for most of the year. Customer service is provided from an office in Mangrove Bush.

These pristine islands are very much as they have been for the last two hundred years though their populations are actually now a lot smaller than they were in the 1800s, and in the days of the salt industry, and sponging. They are generally well endowed with coppice forests, and feature many beautiful coves, bays, and headlands. Christopher Columbus dubbed these islands as “the fragrant islands”. The shallow waters they enclose, known as the Bight of Acklins, is reportedly one of the best bonefishing locations in the world. The W&SC provides water to the Salina Point, and Snug Corner areas, using reverse osmosis sources, and also operates a small plant on Long Cay. Groundwater resources are used to supply Colonel Hill, Lovely Bay, and Chesters.

Mayaguana remains largely undeveloped though it features miles of white-sand beach, and healthy off-shore coral reefs. A simple well field system provides water to Pirates Well and Betsey Bay, and plans are in place to replace this by a reverse osmosis source, which will also supply the community of Abrahams Bay.

This large low-lying island is probably the most arid in the Bahamas, and as a consequence lacks appreciable water resources, but supports a viable salt harvesting industry based on natural evaporation processes. The island includes the Inagua National Park which is the home of one of the largest flamingo flocks in the world. Other wild life of interest include wild donkeys and boars, and the Bahama Parrot. The W&SC has to provide water produced by desalination from a plant located in Matthew Town in the same location as its office.
