Council is offering ratepayers who are connected to the town water supply and sewerage
systems of Kyogle, Bonalbo or Woodenbong the opportunity to save money and help protect the environment through water conservation measures on residential premises.
It does this through a water rebate scheme, which has been in place since 2006.
