There have a been a couple of recent incidents where members of the community have taken water illegally from one or another of the water sources in the Gnowangerup town site.


It is timely, therefore, to remind everyone that:

  • The dam next to the bowling club is for the sole use of the club;
  • The dam to the west of the bowling club dam has a standpipe and is available for emergency personal use of people living outside the town site who do not have access to scheme water. It is not for the use of people or businesses located in town; and
  • The metered standpipe opposite the Shire Depot uses scheme water and is available to all community members, individuals and businesses alike. Access cards are available from the Shire Office.


Any unauthorised use is stealing and could lead to prosecution.
