Your private drinking water supply
Most Victorians obtain their drinking water directly from a water corporation through a potable (drinkable) water supply. However, where potable drinking water is not available, some people obtain their drinking or domestic water from private supplies, such as:
- rainwater tanks
- rivers and creeks
- irrigation channels
The Department of Health offer information regarding private drinking water supplies. Follow this link to learn more health.vic.gov.au/water/privatedrinking/rainwater.htm.
‘Your private drinking water supply’ booklet has been developed to provide simple information to help keep private domestic drinking water supplies safe and healthy.
