  • The normal procedure is that your solicitor will advise us.

    Your solicitor or conveyancer may organise for a final reading to be done on your meter prior to settlement.

    After settlement they will notify us of the sale via a notice of disposition and pay any outstanding water accounts owing up to the day you sold.

    If you have a current outstanding water bill owing prior to settlement you do not need to pay it. Contact us and a note will be placed on your account to stop a reminder/warning notice from being sent.

    Make sure your mailing address is up to date.

  • If you’re in a property with its own water meter, your lease determines if you’re responsible for paying for the water usage. Water usage billing is determined by the reading on the property's water meter.

    If you’re renting a premise where you share a water meter with another property, the usage amount is the responsibility of your landlord.

What are our water levels like?

Lake Lonsdale

Last year

Lake Lonsdale is currently closed to duck shooting

Lake Lonsdale is a large, shallow reservoir on the Mt William Creek. It fills from its own catchment and is reliant on natural inflows. Although the catchment can be a substantial producer of water during wet years because of its very large area, it isn't reliable during times of drought. Given its relatively shallow depth, the lake also has high evaporation losses over summer months.

Since the introduction of the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline, the lake is no longer used by GWMWater for domestic or stock water supply, however it's still a key source of water for the environment. Lake Lonsdale also has an important role in the community as a recreational lake in the Stawell area, hosting a number of activities on its northern side, such as boating, swimming, camping and water skiing.
