In line with the evolving COVID-19 situation, Southern Rural Water is making changes to how it operates to ensure the safety of our customers, community and staff.
All of our office receptions are now closed. Our customer service team will support customers to resolve queries over the phone, via livechat on our website, or in the customer portal.
If a query cannot be resolved virtually, face-to-face appointments will be available at our Maffra Office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 2pm.
To minimise public risk, Southern Rural Water will make every effort to resolve queries over the phone to ensure we play our vital role in limiting potential COVID-19 exposure.
