Westport/Carters Beach Water Supply – Partial Shutdown

16th August, 2016

Consumers on the Westport/Carters Beach water supply are advised that there will be a partial shutdown on the Stephens Road trunk main on Wednesday 17 August from 9am until 11am.

The reason for this shutdown is to allow for the installation of a new fire hydrant on Robertson Street.

Some residents in the vicinity of Robertson Street and other consumers, particularly near the ends of the reticulation, may experience lower than normal pressure. 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 shutdown. However, if any resident experiences slightly discoloured water they should run an outside hose tap for 10-15 minutes.

Council apologises for any inconvenience to consumers.
