Sewer update

4th February, 2022

Evacuated areas and areas on the margins of these do not have a proper functioning sewer system.

Infrastructure in these areas has been disabled to prevent damage and minimise overflow.

The system is currently working in the majority of the non-evacuated areas of town, but this may be disrupted at any time.

Teams are working hard to maintain power to and flow within the remaining sewer system.

The sewer may appear to be working locally however it may flow to and be overflowing into nearby low lying areas.

Please consider minimising sewer use during this time.

Due to potential contamination please treat all storm water as potentially contaminated.

The Carters Beach sewer system remains in operation and is expected to remain operating through the current event.

Thank you for your consideration
