Water Corporation advises the Shire of Kondinin’s Alymore Road, Hyden, high flow commercial use standpipe has been temporary closed this morning to help conserve water for other scheme users, including the Hyden town site and surrounds.


This urgent action was necessary due to the high temperatures expected over the next few days and recent higher than normal water use in the Hyden area.


The Shire has informed standpipe users via its SMS service and advises that alternate lower flow standpipes will remain available for use at Alymore Rd (community standpipe) south of Chalk-Hill Road West; Karlgarin Dam and Allen Rocks Road.


If you require further information on the alternate water supplies that are available for community use, please contact the Shire of Kondinin on 9889 1006.


Water Corporation will continue to monitor the water supply scheme in the area.   A further update will be provided when the standpipe is reopened.


Water Corporation thanks the local community for its patience and understanding and apologises for any inconvenience this temporary standpipe closure may cause.


For enquiries please contact Water Corporation on 13 13 75.
