Customer Assist Program

Customer Assist Program

Talk to us if you’re having difficulty paying your bill. We can help find you a payment option and get you back on track.

We understand that sometimes it’s difficult to meet financial obligations and household expenses. Through our Customer Assist Program we help residential customers stay in touch with us and better manage their bills.

We’ll work with you to agree on a payment plan, so that overdue accounts and new bills are paid as early as possible.

We can support you

Payment plan
We can help you set up a weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment schedule.

Short-term deferral
We may be able to help with a short-term payment deferral.

Direct debit
We can help you arrange a direct debit payment option.

A Centrepay arrangement can be set up via telephone to help reduce your payment defaults.

Direct contact
We provide you with a direct point of contact so that together, we can get you back on track.

Regular contact and follow-up
We’ll keep in touch with you regularly by phone call, SMS, email or letter – just let us know what works best for you.

Protection from fees and restriction
We can protect you from overdue fees and water restriction, taking away the worry of debt collection or legal action.

Financial counselling
We can refer you to community agencies for financial counselling, who provide free, confidential and independent financial support and assistance.

Repairs and efficiency check
If you have a water leak, or a dripping tap or toilet, we may be able to organise a licensed plumber to fix these, install a water efficient shower head and provide you with advice on water

If you have longer-term financial difficulties, our Customer Assist Program can help you. The program gives you help and support. Read our Hardship Policy for more information.

Temporary traffic management may remain in place until reinstatement of the impacted road is complete. We always aim to minimise inconvenience by restoring services as safely and quickly as we can.
