Draft Water Extraction Policy


Council is seeking feedback on its recently reviewed and updated Water Extraction Policy. The policy applies to all persons, corporations and/or contractors wishing to extract water from Council’s potable water supply network for non-potable and/or potable water carting.

The policy is an essential document of Wingecarribee Shire Council’s commitment to providing safe, reliable and good quality drinking water to the community. It will enable Council to improve its visibility and management of urban filling stations and take more consistent affirmative actions in cases of water theft and/or the unauthorised use of standpipes within Wingecarribee Shire.

To learn more please read the draft policy and associated report considered by Council on 24 October 2018.

You can view a printed copy of associated documents at libraries and the Civic Centre or download the files below:
