Council has provided a list of water refill points available to private property residents for small domestic quantities of water.

Council is working with commercial water providers, some of which have stopped taking orders until October due to high demand, to determine commercial water supply point issues and the worst affected areas.

Council is continuing to work in close partnership with Unitywater to try and establish more large quantity filling points across the region to assist commercial operators and to speed up water deliveries to our community.  

With no rain on the forecast horizon, residents living on water tanks are encouraged to take advantage of the small quality refill stations and to also take ongoing action to preserve their current supplies.

Evidence provided from commercial operators suggests that hundreds of properties may now be suffering water shortages. Residents are encouraged to order water before they run out, due to the possible three week or longer waiting time.

Each of the following locations has one tap and hose outlet available for immediate free public use.
