They are intended to be used by businesses such as contractors or water carters, following an application and approval by Icon Water. 

Standpipes are not available to residential customers for personal or domestic purposes. Standpipes are not to be used for temporary construction site supply.  

All standpipes used in the ACT must be metered and hired from the Icon Water office, located at 12 Hoskins Street Mitchell (open 8.00am to 4.45pm) Monday to Friday.
