Drought Relief for Stock Water Usage

Maranoa Regional Council is expanding its discounted water usage for rural residents to include the use for watering of stock, in the Maranoa region.

Council says that stock watering will be charged at $1.50 per kilolitre and the maximum amount of water to be taken for stock watering is 200kL per month.

The Surat water standpipe however is excluded from the arrangement.

In order to gain access to discounted water, residents need to purchase a prepaid Avdata key from any Council Customer Service Centre.

This discount will only apply while the Maranoa region is drought declared.
