The following decision was made yesterday under delegation on behalf of Council:

That, in recognition of the current drought conditions, Council make town water available free of charge at its Nyngan standpipes to all residents of the Bogan Shire Local Government Area whose properties are not connected to reticulated town water supplies for an initial period up to 28 February 2019. 

That water is supplied on the following conditions:

  • Water is only to be used for personal, domestic use only and cannot be provided to a third party.

  • That the daily amount supplied be limited to 30 kilolitres to assist in managing demand.

  • Persons collecting water are solely responsible for cleanliness of containers/tanks filled from the standpipe.

  • Bogan Shire Council has no responsibility for water quality once water is removed from the standpipe.

  • Collection of water will be between 10am and 12pm by arrangement on the day before collection.

Anyone needing access to water please complete the application form and return to Council prior to contacting Trevor Waterhouse, Senior Water and Waste Water Operator for Bogan Shire Council on 0409 078762 to make arrangements for collection of water.
