There is a severe drought in the Far North and water restrictions are in place at all Council water supplies.

Council provides a rainwater collection system in urban areas to minimise flooding and protect the people and environment from the effects of stormwater.
Council has 16 wastewater disposal schemes. Properties not connected to the system need to have an onsite system (septic tank).
Properties not connected to the Council wastewater system must have an onsite wastewater disposal system (septic tank) installed.
