Water comes from rivers or ground bores, so we regularly test drinking water to make sure the supply is safe. Learn more about water quality in your area and where your water comes from.

Some water from our homes goes into streams - some gets treated. It's best if the two don't mix. This guide will help you protect our rivers and streams from paint, chemicals and other pollution.

Your water meter can help you monitor water usage, and detect leaks. This will save you money and avoid needless waste.

Rural water supplies have restricted flow and you need to make sure you have adequate storage.
