Rural water users

If you are on an independent water supply, i.e. your water comes from a community water scheme, a stream, bore or spring, and you don’t get a water bill from the Council, then you are a rural water user. This means that you are affected by rural water restrictions when in place.

Regular monitoring and snappy decision making is the key to protecting your property and livestock against the effects of drought.

See an advisory document on farm management under drought conditions (420KB PDF).
