We rely on the public to report any suspected breach of water restrictions.

Although our first priority is to educate the community about efficient water usage, we also have Authorised Water Officers looking for customers who are not complying with water restrictions.

Central Highlands Water can issue a Penalty Infringement Notice (fine) without providing advance notification and we can restrict supply for repeated breaches.

In the 2014/15 financial year a single penalty unit equals $147.61.
