Wingecarribee Shire Council has been a “Standpipe Free Shire” since 2009. The drawing of water supply through a standpipe is considered theft and hefty penalties apply.
As an alternative, Council has installed six water filling stations throughout the shire. These filling stations are available for use by approved water carters and ensure that Council’s water supply is protected from cross contamination and water theft.
