Following the implementation of their water saving measures last week, Goldenfields Water have committed to further assisting the community by announcing a 25% reduction for all rural and residential public standpipe water users.

Goldenfields Water’s General Manager, Aaron Drenovski, said “given all the communities that we provide essential water services to are facing the worst drought in 120 years, the board unanimously agreed to the 25% fee reduction for our rural and residential public standpipe users.

The fee for the new bulk filling stations located at Temora, West Wyalong and Barmedman is currently $6 per kL, however this will be reduced to $4.50 per kL from the 1st January 2020 for a period of 6 months.

The reduction will also be passed onto customers who utilise any of the 23 rural standpipes in our area and a list of these locations and standpipe operator contact details can be found on our website,” added Mr Drenovski.

Given that many local farmers and rural residents will need to consider carting water for stock and domestic purposes, this reduction will hopefully assist in relieving some financial pressures.

“Combined with the water saving measures announced last week and the free Goldenfields Water mobile phone app, we hope these measures will lessen the burden for our customers and allow Goldenfields Water to effectively maintain water resources throughout the summer months,” said Mr Drenovski.
