Rainwater Tanks

Rainwater is essential in areas where scheme water is not available. It is safe to drink provided it is carefully collected and stored appropriately. It is common that rainwater supplies may become contaminated with animal droppings, chemical sprays and other debris. The Shire recommends that you monitor your rainwater supply and arrange regular maintenance of the whole system from roof to tank to tap to reduce the risk of contamination.

For more information refer to Water Tanks on Your Property.

Sampling

Shire of Mundaring offers two free bacteriological samples of your rainwater tank per financial year if you do not have access to scheme water. Subsequent samples and samples from properties where scheme water is available will attract a fee of $50 per sample. You can arrange this sampling by contacting the Shire's Health Service.
