Standpipes

Truck at standpipe

Potable water may be obtained from Council managed standpipes in Maldon, Newstead and Taradale. An AvData key is required to access water as all standpipes are connected to the electronic AvData system.

Customers with a water carters’ licence may purchase an AvData key and be set-up with an AvData account at the Civic Centre in Castlemaine. Individuals with an AvData key may also apply for access to any standpipe in the Coliban Water network connected to the AvData system.
