Will GWMWater disconnect my water if I don't pay my bill?

Water is an essential service and we don't disconnect your water for non-payment.

However, we may take legal action or restrict your water supply to two litres per minute due to non-payment if:

  • more than 14 days have lapsed since the issue of a reminder notice
  • we've sent a warning notice including information on GWMWater’s Hardship Policy and other programs that are available to help you with payment difficulties
  • we've attempted to make contact with you about the non-payment
  • we've notified you of the restriction or legal action and the associated costs, including the cost of removing a restrictor
  • we've offered or agreed to a flexible payment plan, and you've refused or failed to comply with the arrangement.
