Council, at its meeting held on Friday 12 December 2014, adopted the Customer Service Standards for Water Supply (pdf).

'Their Promised Land', by Peter and Shelia Forrest, is a history of the people and places of the Barcoo Shire, Western Queensland.

As a requirement under recent legislation, Council has established a customer service standard for its water supply which sets targets for a number of key performance indicators.

The customer service standard also includes the process for service connections, billing, metering, accounting, customer consultation, complaints and dispute resolution.
