Sprinkler ban for Blackwater
Central Highlands Regional Council advises residents that problems associated with discoloured water may be experienced as reservoirs are extremely low.
It is also recommended that water be boiled for drinking purposes.
Council is advising all residents who are connected to the town reticulated water supply system that the problem is associated with the Blackwater Water reticulation system.
Until the problems associated with the supply are rectified a total sprinkler ban is in place and residents are being requested to conserve water by limiting their use to essential requirements such as drinking and flushing of toilets.
Residents are advised to limit washing of clothes.
This is expected to be a temporary interruption to supply and Council will further advise residents once full service has been reinstated.
Council apologises for this inconvenience.
Advice on Council’s website www.centralhighlands.qld.gov.au will be updated regularly.
If residents have any further concerns, they are asked to contact Mr Danniel Pymble, Manager Water Utilities on 1300 242 686.
