Council advises that the water supply in the area of Kirkley Street through to McKanes Falls Road, South Bowenfels has been repaired and the lines are being recharged currently.

Council staff have completed the mains repair which was found below the many layers of pavement in the Great Western Highway near Kirkley Street. Once lines have recharged to normal service, residents may experience dirty water for a period.

Council apologises for the delay in service being returned. Staff have been working continuously on the infrastructure to return service and stopping only to ensure fatigue is managed.

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.
