Accessing emergency water from Council’s town water supply

During times of extended dry conditions some residents not serviced by town water, who are reliant on tank supply, may require some emergency water while waiting for a tanker to top up their tanks.

Council has made arrangements to supply water to residents requiring an emergency supply of non-potable water. The water is supplied via a metered standpipe and hose at the Nammoona Waste & Resource Recovery Facility.
