Low Water Pressure in Westport and Carters Beach

7th January, 2021

Consumers on the Westport and Carters Beach Water Supply are advised that the supply will be on low pressure on Thursday 14 January 2021 from 9:00 am until approximately 3:00 pm. This is to allow for urgent repairs on the 14” trunk main.

Please note that this shutdown will affect all consumers on the Westport and Carters Beach Water Supply.

Some consumers may experience very low pressure and minimal water flow or no flow at all. To assist with water pressure to other consumers on the reticulation please restrict your household water usage to an absolute minimum during this period. In this event, consumers need to be prepared by storing sufficient water for use during this period. 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 thanks consumers for their co-operation and apologizes for any inconvenience.
