Drinking Water

A large proportion of properties located within the shire do not have access to scheme water and therefore rely on either rainwater or bore water. Some measures must be taken by the home owner to ensure the water they are using is safe for consumption.

Rainwater

Rainwater is essential in areas where scheme water is not available. It is usually safe to drink, however it can be easily contaminated if not collected and stored appropriately. For more information refer to Rainwater Tanks.

Bore water

Bore water can become contaminated by natural processes and human activities as it moves through the ground. Department of Health therefore does not recommend the drinking of bore water unless it is professionally treated or tested on a regular basis. Bore water can be used safely for irrigation, flushing toilets, laundry and washing cars.
