Council advises residents that Council and/or its appointed water meter reading contractors will soon begin reading water meters throughout the region for the half year period ending 30 June 2019. This will apply to all premises connected to the water supply schemes in Blackbutt, Boondooma, Kingaroy, Kumbia, Murgon, Nanango, Proston, Proston Rural, Tingoora, Wondai and Wooroolin for the purpose of recording water meter readings.

The water meter reading program will commence on Friday 7 June 2019 and is expected to continue until Friday 26 July 2019 and will be conducted between the hours of 6am and 6pm daily.

The water meter reading program collects information for the billing of water consumption that will be included on the rate notices to be issued in August 2019.

Meter reading personnel may be required to enter properties to gain access to and read the water meters. It is a requirement of our water meter reading personnel that soil or other material that is removed from any meter box to record a reading is returned to the meter box. This prevents drains from being blocked or ratepayer lawns being damaged by anything removed from the meter box.  For the safety of meter reading personnel, please ensure that your animals are enclosed within your property and check that garden vegetation does not obstruct access to your water meter.

More details about the billing of water consumption and other useful information can be found on Council’s website.
