Due to maintenance works on the Nhill water main we advise that there will be a series of interruptions to water supply affecting the township of Nhill during the period from:
Tuesday 27 June to Tuesday 4 July
These works are essential as part of GWMWater’s commitment to improve water quality in Nhill. You may have experienced issues with water discolouration. The dirty water is due to iron in the drinking water pipeline reticulation system, that built up when the town was supplied with groundwater, and is now coming off the pipes.
GWMWater have been addressing this issue with a flushing and air scouring program, and are now looking at implementing other water quality improvement techniques in the next month to address this problem.The cleaning process takes time, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by the coloured water. Works are essential and will be completed as quickly as possible to keep customer impact to a minimum.
For more information on specific times your street may be affected or general enquiries about the process please contact our Customer Call Centre during business hours on 1300 659 961.
We apologise for any inconvenience that these works may cause and thank you in advance for your co-operation.
