“We do not have an estimated time for the repair to be complete but tankers are in place to provide a water supply for our customers while this complex repair takes place.

“Please be aware during peak demand you may still experience low pressure or discoloured water while alternative supplies are in place. The water supply will gradually return to normal.”
