Update 15 January 2019 - Work to connect the new reticulation water main to the existing water network will take place as follows:

  • Tuesday 22 January between 10am and 3pm: This work will take place at the top of Mount Street (near Kings Park) and will interrupt the water supply to one customer. We will be in touch with this customer directly to make alternative arrangements for supply.
  • Wednesday 23 to Thursday 24 January between 10pm and 4am: This work will take place at the bottom of Mount Street (near Mitchell Freeway) and is being carried out at night to avoid restricting water supply to customers during the day.

Please draw any water before 10pm, you may need during this time.

Customers will experience an increase in activity in the area and some noise while work takes place. We apologise for the inconvenience.
