Registering for an online account is quick and simple. All you need is a copy of your bill.

If you’ve recently moved into your property, you'll need to wait until you receive your first bill before registering. This is because you need your unique Electronic Reference Number (ERN) found on the top right-hand side of the back of your bill.

Property managers: If you are a property manager looking to start management of a new property, please first complete the Start Management form to add a property. Once you've submitted the form, you'll receive the first bill for the property, including your unique ERN to register for an online account.

Who can register

  • Homeowners
  • Businesses
  • Tenants – to register for an online account, you need to receive your water use bills directly from us. Please read tenant billing to find out more about how to arrange this.
  • Property managers or agents

What you need

  • A copy of your water bill – this has your unique Electronic Reference Number (ERN) located in the top right-hand corner of the back of your bill
  • Your ABN if you're a business. 

Note for businesses: Please use your water bill to register for an online account. If you use the ERN on your trade waste bill, you may only be able to see your trade waste permit summary without your payment, bill and water use information.
