Water meter reading

Contract readers will commence water meter reading in the Shire from Monday 28 May. These three monthly water usage accounts will be issued in July and are due for payment by 31 August 2018.

Dog owners are asked to ensure that contract officers can access your property’s water meter without interference from your dog. Overgrown or buried water meters can also cause problems and may result in incorrect readings being registered. Please make sure your water meter is accessible at all times.
