Update 3.30pm

Water Corporation has now fully restored water supplies to all residents and businesses in Carnarvon following the damage caused by ex TC Olwyn on the weekend.

Water outages occurred in the town from late Friday evening due to a loss of power and damage to a critical water main from a fallen tree.

Water Corporation is still using generators to power the local water supply borefield until power is completely restored.

Carnarvon residents are asked to use water sparingly until power is restored to the borefield.

Water supplied to town residents by the Water Corporation is safe to drink.

There are no issues with the Water Corporation’s wastewater system.

We would like to thank our customers in Carnarvon for their patience and understanding over the last few days.

If anyone experiences difficulties with their water supply or notices any damage to water mains they should contact the Water Corporation immediately on 13 13 75.
