Water Notices

Water valve testing, ongoing around the district.

We are exercising water valves around the district to ensure they're working properly - this is an important part of maintaining our water network as it helps us indentify issues early. This process may dislodge sediment and it's possible some properties may experience "dirty water".

If you notice dirty water, we recommend turning on an outside tap for a few minutes to flush through any sediment or air bubbles, which may cause discolouration to the water. If that does not solve the issue, please contact us 0800 746 467. Thank you for your patience.
