Possible disruption to Hilltop water supply on Thursday 7 June

5 June, 2012

Wingecarribee Shire Council wishes to advise that it will be conducting essential upgrades to the Hilltop water service on Thursday 7 Junethat may result in temporary disruption to the immediate water supply.

The temporary disruption is necessary in order for contract staff to install pressure management equipment, similar to the equipment which was recently installed in the Moss Vale and Exeter areas and is designed to regulate and monitor water flows.

This work is scheduled to begin at 8.00am on Thursday 7 June and take approximately five hours to complete.

Residents in the Hilltop area may experience a temporary loss of water supply, lack of water pressure, temporary discolouration of water or excess air in the water (distinguished by a ‘cloudy’ or ‘milky’ appearance).

Once water supply is returned, Council recommends turning a cold water tap on slowly allowing any trapped air to escape.

Care should be taken to ensure hot water heaters and washing machines are NOT used and taps are turned off during this scheduled interruption of water supply.

Council apologises for any inconvenience.
