SERVICE DISRUPTION

REDUCED PRODUCTION AT THE SIPARIA WATER TREATMENT PLANT

The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises that customers served by the Siparia Water Treatment Plant, may be experiencing a disruption in their water supply due to reduced production caused by a downhole issue impacting Siparia Well #14.

Repair works have slowed as recent adverse weather and the poor condition of the access road, have made it difficult for heavy equipment to perform the maintenance works.

The affected areas include:

Quinam Road, Sennon Village, Railway Road, Mary, George & Victoria, Upper De Gannes, Lower Coora Road, Coora Hernandez Road, Coora Extension, Mendez, Saney Trace, Kay Trace, Prana Home Development, High Street, inclusive of all side streets.

Works will accelerate as conditions improve with completion projected as 8:00 p.m. Tuesday 8th November 2022.

The Authority further advises that upon restoration of production, it may take up to 24 hours for the pipe-borne water supply to be restored in some areas.

The Authority thanks all those affected for their patience and understanding.
