Application for water carrier licence

We provide drinking water to the majority of our community via reticulated water mains, however for properties not connected or for other commercial uses, we also provide fixed standpipes to authorised water carters for both potable (drinking) and recycled water.

Carriers registered with us are issued a special key to operate the system. By providing this service, we control who draws water from our system and can ensure their equipment is safe by undertaking annual vehicle inspections and preventing potential public health risks associated with the contamination of the treated water supply.

Potable water is available from our depots in Port Macquarie, Wauchope and Laurieton and recycled water from Port Macquarie. Operators can apply online for access to these standpipes.
