Lockable Stop Tap to Prevent Water Theft
Council has received reports of people stealing water from taps when the owners were absent.
Council would like to remind customers that such incidents are private issues best dealt with the police.
Council can also help customers prevent such theft by purchasing and installing a lockable stop tap to your meter. A lockable stop tap is a device designed to prevent unlawful access to your water supply. If you have concerns that water is being stolen from your property, Council can install a lockable stop tap to prevent water theft. The cost of this installation would be approximately $100 for the parts and labour per stop tap. Travel costs may also be applicable. The lockable stop tap must be installed by Council’s personnel only.
Please contact Council’s Water and Wastewater department for a quotation if you wish to have this device installed
