Trafalgar air scouring – 27 October to 19 November

We’ll be completing air scouring works in Trafalgar from Tuesday 27 October to Thursday 19 November 2020.

We use air scouring to clean sections of our water supply pipelines that carry reticulated water to homes and businesses in the region. Air scouring allows a high quality water to be maintained from a taste and odour perspective, by keeping systems clean of sediment residues.

You may notice your water is off for short periods while we complete this work – it will not be impacted the entire time.

If you find your water milky in appearance, let the tap run for a few moments so the extra air can flow through the system.

Please call us on 1800 057 057 if you’d like further information.
