Who can have a RWS
Any Landowner close enough to Harvey Water’s pipeline may apply to connect as a RWS customer.
Intending customers are invited to contact the Contract & Compliance Coordinator at the Harvey Water office on 9729 0100 for a ‘Conditions of Connection’ information pack and an Application form.
A Rural Water Service (RWS) replaces what was previously known as a By-Law 11. With the introduction of the piped irrigation water system in Harvey, new non-shareholders and existing By-Law customers wanting a stock and garden supply may have the option to become a RWS customer.
The RWS Company’s aim is to provide a non-potable water service for people living in rural areas who require a small amount of water for stock and garden needs. In 2013 there was a change in policy to also allow shareholders to have an RWS SP, with water being paid for at the irrigation rate. This service is called a Shareholder Stock & Garden (SSG) supply.
