WATER CORPORATION : IMPORTANT MESSAGE - BUSHFIRE SEASON

- The Water Corporation will always do all that they can to maintain supply however fire damaged infrastructure or a cut to power can result in a total loss of water.
- If scheme water is available during a bushfire it is a bonus for property protection efforts, but it is not something that can be relied upon.
