Monitor water usage to detect leaks
WATER meters across the region will be read over the coming months for the half-year period ending December 31, 2015.
Childers and surrounding areas will be read in November and December, and Gin Gin and surrounds in December.
The council will endeavour to advise ratepayers in writing if water consumption is considerably higher than normal, as that may indicate a water leak on the property.
Ratepayers are encouraged to monitor the usage and check the water meter readings regularly to detect possible leaks.
Should ratepayers experience a water leak, they may be eligible for relief from the resulting higher than normal water charges.
For the safety of the council’s water meter reading contractors, ratepayers are requested to ensure dogs are secured within the property boundary.
For any water rates inquiries, ratepayers can contact the Bundaberg Regional Council by phone on 1300 883 699, or e-mail email@example.com.
