If you're having trouble paying your bill, we have a range of options to help. Our team will work with you to give you confidential and tailored advice.

We have adopted the national coronavirus support principles. These principles, agreed by the National Cabinet of Australia, support residential and small business customers who are facing financial difficulty as a result of coronavirus. More information about the principles is available from the Essential Services Commission

Flexible payments

We're here to help you work out a payment option that meets your needs. You can make regular, smaller payments to keep on top of your costs. For example, making a small payment every fortnight.

If you need more time to pay your bill, you can submit a Two Week Payment Extension Request form online.


Community rebate program

Our free water audit program repairs or replaces water fixtures to help reduce the cost of your water bill. To be eligible, you must:
