Residents are being warned to expect higher than average water bills as a result of this increase in consumption. Accounts for the previous quarter will be issued to residents this Friday the 1st of April 2016. Parkes Shire
Council encourages residents to utilise the information on the Council website, including understanding your water account bill and ways to conserve water in your home and garden.
