Standpipes are portable hydrants designed to be connected to a fire hydrant in a water main to gain access to bulk water. They are for business purposes only and must not be used for agriculture or as an alternative to a normal property water supply.
Examples of acceptable business uses are:
- To suppress dust
- On a construction or building site
- For new landscaping projects or bush regeneration
- To cart water
All standpipes used in our area of operations must be metered and hired from us. There are currently two sizes of metered standpipes:
- 25mm - for small volume users
- 65mm - for large volume users
Bulk water filling stations offer a cheap and convenient means for contractors, water carters and rural customers to access drinking water. Our bulk water stations are located in:
- Kangaroo Valley - Broughton Street
- Tomerong - Corner of Hawken and Yerunda Roads
Please note: When you hire a metered standpipe from us, you commit to submitting quarterly meter readings. Failure to provide a quarterly meter reading will result in a late fee, per device.
Steps to apply
On return of a standpipe, we will read the meter and deduct any water usage charges from the refundable deposit. If a standpipe is returned damaged, a full refund may not be issued.
