We have just been informed that a main line water pipe between the reservoir and balancing dam has burst.

The municipality is currently working on the problem, however, areas in Forest Downs, West Beach and areas feeding off the Smith Street pump station will be most severely affected with low water pressure and lack of water.

They are expecting the repairs to be completed today, however, current water consumption exceeds the amount that can be pumped into the balancing dam, and this will have a knock on effect over the next few days.

Please use water sparingly until the problem can be resolved.
