Coral Coast Water P/L will notify a customer in writing prior to the water service being disconnected as part of their Debtor Procedure.
Planned and unplanned interruptions of water supply or other incidents may also affect the provision of water services.

GWC are also authorised under the Act to charge interest, disconnect or reduce the flow of water if water service charges are left unpaid for an unreasonable time after the payment due date.
GWC do not want to disconnect or reduce flow to any of our members but if you do not pay your water service charges we cannot keep supplying you with free water while everyone else pays for it. All disconnections are a last resort. GWC are prepared to enter into a payment plan arrangement with a grower going through financial difficulties or cash flow problems. Payment plan arrangements must to realistic, be able to reduce arrears at the same time as keeping up with current quarterlies and monthly usage bills, and once agreed to must be adhered to otherwise disconnection procedures are recommenced. GWC has authority to disconnect or reduce flow even if a member is offered a payment plan or other arrangement under which they are given more time to pay or to pay arrears or if the member does not comply with the plan or other arrangement. GWC will issue a Notice of Proposed Limitation or Discontinuation of Services prior. A Disconnection/Reconnection fee of $500 will be billed to you on reconnection of your service. This fee is due and payable immediately.
If you are experiencing difficulties paying your water bills please make an appointment to discuss your circumstances with our General Manager so that a payment plan arrangement can be formulated.
