Blue-Green Algae Update - Pental Island System - RED 

No change of Status - Current as at 3.15 pm Monday 2 May 2016.

GWMWater advises that it has received elevated sample results from the Laboratory at the pump stations supplying the Pental Island system. The system remains RED and reverse pumping is still in place which means water has stopped being taken directly from the Murray River at this location.

Reverse pumping draws water from Berriwillock, Culgoa and Quambatook storages. GWMWater will also have water carting arrangements in place for any customer that may experience insufficient water supply requirements during this situation.

Water will be available for carting to rural customers domestic tank, which can be used for all domestic and internal farm uses. GWMWater will do everything it can to maintain either a piped or a carted supply to its customers. To access water carting please call 1800 188 586. GWMWater customers are also able to source their own water from the designated hydrants across the region and listed below.

Town supplies will be unaffected as town systems have been isolated and water available in town storages will meet urban demands without restrictions.

GWMWater does not warrant the quality of stock and domestic water, however we test the water regularly for Blue-Green Algae and advise when levels are elevated. The raw water we supply for stock and domestic purposes is not regarded as being fit for human consumption under any circumstances. This includes the Wimmera Mallee and Northern Mallee pipeline systems. For information on stock related issues customers are referred to the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources on 13 61 86 or visit www.agriculture.vic.gov.au for further advice.

Customers are encouraged to access GWMWater’s website or to call 1800 188 586 for information that is accurate and up to date. An SMS message will be sent to all customers who have provided GWMWater with their details on this system as soon as the results are received to inform you of the situation.

If you would like to receive SMS messaging from GWMWater when there is a change to the status of sampling, please ensure that we have your telephone details either by emailing us at info@gwmwater.org.au or calling 1800 188 586. Updates are also made to this page, GWMWater's social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter) as well as through media outlets which cover the region.

Blue-Green Algae Update - Nyah and Piangil Systems - RED

No Change to Status - Current as at 3.15 pm Monday 2 May 2016.

*** Pumps remain open - Notice to Isolate Household and Stock Water Supply ***

Nyah and Piangil pumps remain open to accommodate an anticipated increase in demand for water for spraying purposes. However the water is very high in Blue-Green Algae so is not fit for normal domestic purposes and could pose a risk to stock.

GWMWater advises that laboratory testing of samples indicate that Blue-Green Algae levels at the Piangil and Nyah Pump stations remain high RED

GWMWater opened the Piangil and Nyah Pumps to accommodate an anticipated increase in demand for water for spraying purposes.

Stock and Domestic customers are advised to isolate their house and stock water supplies from the pipeline. Any customers experiencing supply issues please call GWMWater on 1800 188 586 to arrange for water to be delivered by tanker.  Water is available free of charge through GWMWater’s water carting program.

GWMWater customers are also able to source their own water from the designated hydrants across the region as listed below.

Town supplies will be unaffected as town systems have been isolated and water available in town storages will meet urban demands without restrictions.

Customers are reminded that the water being supplied direct to farms through the Northern Mallee Pipeline or Wimmera Mallee Pipeline or through the water carting is not fit for human consumption. If customers require potable water for drinking or cooking they will need to engage their own water carter to collect water from a drinking water town in a food grade tanker.

For information on stock related issues customers are referred to the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources on 13 61 86 or visit www.agriculture.vic.gov.au for further advice.

Customers using the water for crop spraying are advised to seek advice from their agronomist or rural supplier as the water could possibly foul filters on Spray Units due to the elevated concentration of Blue Green Algae cells.

Customers are encouraged to access GWMWater’s website or to call 1800 188 586 for information that is accurate and up to date. An SMS message will be sent to all customers who have provided GWMWater with their details on this system when results are received that require any change in supply arrangements.

If you would like to receive SMS messaging from GWMWater when there is a change to the status of supply arrangement, please ensure that we have your telephone details either by emailing us at info@gwmwater.org.au or calling 1800 188 586 or 1300 659 961. Updates are also made to this page, GWMWater's social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter) as well as through media outlets which cover the area.
