‘Council makes every effort to minimise water disruptions to our community. However, this temporary disruption is essential and will allow our Water and Wastewater Section to install a new water main,’ they said in a press release.
Tips to assist residents during this outage:
- Fill drinking containers the day before in preparation for this outage.
- During any water disruption it’s important to leave taps off as the water may return at any time.
- When water returns it may be discoloured. This is due to sediment. Please run the tap until the water runs clear.
- Water may appear milky. This is caused by small air bubbles. Don’t be alarmed it is not harmful, and will settle in a short period.
