WESTPORT AND CARTERS BEACH WATER SUPPLYWATER RESTRICTION NOTICE

12th August, 2019

Consumers on the Westport/Carters Beach water supply are requested to restrict the amount of water they use each day.

Due to the sustained loss of water quality at Council’s alternate water supply, water has been unable to be pumped up to the reservoir, leading to a decrease in raw water storage levels.

To enable the raw water reservoirs to recover, consumers are advised to use water for essential purposes only to ensure sufficient pressure is available for all areas of Westport and Carters Beach.  This means using water for drinking, food preparation, hygiene and sanitary purposes only and limiting all extraordinary water usage, including garden irrigation, car washing, water blasting and other high water usage activities.

These water restrictions will stay in place until further notice.

Council appreciates the co-operation of residents during this time.
