It helps keep the water supply from our taps clean, healthy and clear. Cleaning the Water Mains is an essential maintenance activity that enhances the quality of water.


Notification letters have been issued to affected residents. Residents may experience a drop in pressure while we carry out this activity and in some areas, water may stop for longer durations however will return upon completion. The outage should last approximately 1-2 hours, however due to the nature of work involved the length of the supply impact could be up to 8 hours.

Smoke Testing ProgrammeJune 2017 to August 2017

Council has engaged Interflow Pty Ltd to undertake a smoke-testing program whereby the contractor pumps an odourless smoke or dense mist into the sewerage system to detect faults and illegal connections.

These smoke tests are quick, safe, odourless and non-toxic.
