The Food Act 2006 section 49 delegates authority to Council to regulate water carriers carrying potable water for human consumption as a mobile activity. Water carriers who sell water for human consumption will be required to hold a Food Licence with Council.
A mobile Food Licence allows the licensee to operate anywhere within Queensland to carry out the licensable business however they still need to check with the council area they are operating in if any other approvals are required.
Approval to access Council water supply:
To obtain water from a Council standpipe you will require a permit from the Water and Waste section of Council. Please contact Council on 131 872 to enquire about this process.
