Council advises that the water supply in the area of Purcell Street, Paine Street, and surrounding streets in Portland may be affected due to a water mains break.
Council is undertaking emergency repairs on the reticulation network that services the above areas in Portland. Residents in this area of Portland may experience a reduction in water pressure or no water.
Council cannot advise a time for the completion of repairs but will aim to minimize the period of disruption.
Upon return to normal service, residents may experience dirty water for a period. Council will endeavour to minimize 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.
