Westport and Carters Beach Water Supply: Low Pressure

18th December, 2017

Consumers on the Westport and Carters Beach water supply are advised that the supply will be operating on low pressure on Tuesday 19 December from 10.00am until approximately 3.00pm to allow for urgent repairs to the 14 inch trunk main. Normal pressure will be resumed as soon as possible.

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.

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

Council apologises for the very short notice of this repair but due to the severity of this leak the repair cannot be delayed.

Council thanks consumers for their co-operation and apologises for any inconvenience caused.
