Council advises that the water supply in the area of Kirkley Street through to McKanes Falls Road, South Bowenfels may be affected due to a water mains break on the Great Western Highway. Residents may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water for a period until the mains are repaired.

Council cannot advise a time for the completion of repairs but will aim to minimise the period of disruption. Council staff are working to repair the break as soon as possible however it has been difficult to gain access for repairs due to the break being within the westbound lanes of the Great Western Highway and under substantial layers of pavement as part of the highway construction.

Upon return to normal service, residents may experience dirty water for a period.

Council will endeavour to minimise this by flushing the mains. Before using the water for domestic purposes, residents are advised to run the first tap that services their property to ensure the water is clean and any dirt released into the system has been flushed before running internal taps. If you continue to experience issues of dirty water, please contact Council.
