Low water pressure in Westport and Carters Beach

18th January, 2021

Consumers on the Westport and Carters Beach Water Supply are advised that the supply will be on low pressure on Tuesday 19 January 2021 between 9.00 pm and midnight.

This is to allow for the replacement of air valves on the 14 inch and 8 inch trunk mains. The current air valves are suspected to be contributing to the air lock within the system and the subsequent low pressure currently being experienced by some consumers in Westport.

Westport and Carters Beach residents may experience low water pressure during this time as a result of this work.

Normal supply will be resumed as soon as possible.

Consumers are advised that mains flushing will be carried out following the reinstatement of full pressure.

Council appreciates your ongoing co-operation and apologises for any inconvenience.
