Review of Regional Standpipes

The Water Corporation will be changing the way water from standpipes is charged from the 1 July 2019 and will be based on the following four categories.

  • Local Authority Standpipe - No Annual Service Charge / Water Use Charge $2.534 per kilolitre - Shire use only
  • Community Standpipe - Annual Service Charge $265.41 / Water Use Charge $2.534 per kilolitre - 25mm standpipe
  • Commercial Standpipe  - Annual Service Charge $1,658.93 / Water Use Charge $8.353 per kilolitre - 50mm standpipe
  • Fire-fighting Standpipe - No Annual Fee 100% discount / No Water Use Charge - Must be locked and for fire-fighting use only

The Shire of Corrigin will need to reclassify the standpipes under the new price structure and want your feedback on which classification you prefer.

If Council does not reclassify each standpipe, WaterCorp will charge Commercial Fees which will be significantly more expensive.

Please send any comments to Julia Baker by 4.00pm Friday 26 October 2018 or vote on the Shire of Corrigin Regional Water Standpipe Review, Facebook poll
