Water Standpipes

Potable Water Standpipes

Water is available for domestic use only through a number of standpipes across the region.

Potable water (drinking quality) can be purchased from standpipes at Chinchilla, Miles, Dalby, Wandoan and Jandowae.

The charge for all water accessed from these standpipes can be found in Council’s Fees and Charges register.

All water standpipe requests out side of normal Council working hours will incur a call out fee based on the equivalent wages incurred by Council for a call out.

Sales in excess of 1,000 kilolitres are subject to written application and approval by Council.

 

Non-potable Water Standpipes

Non-potable (not for drinking) water can be used for commercial purposes. Costs can be found in Council’s Fees and Charges register.

All water standpipe requests out side of normal Council working hours will incur a call out fee based on the equivalent wages incurred by Council for a call out.

Sales in excess of 1,000 kilolitres are subject to written application and approval by Council.

 

Other Regional Standpipes

All water standpipe requests (potable and non-potable) for other centres across the region are subject to written application and approval by Council.
