Water Filling Stations

The use of metered potable standpipes is now unauthorised and strictly prohibited other than for the exclusive use of councils and fire brigade services (for fire fighting purposes).

Please Note: The fixed overhead standpipes will continue to operate at Walla Walla and Walbundrie.


Water carters, contractors and farm tankers need to fill up at the Bulk Water Filling Stations or existing Fixed Overhead Standpipes.
