Routine Hydrant Flushing

Published: 13 Sep 2017

Council undertake routine hydrant flushing on a monthly cycle around the urban areas.  This is to maintain water quality and compliance.

The process involves aggressively releasing water through the pipes which may cause discolouration of tap water in some areas.

If this occurs please run your cold water taps until the water clears, this may be ten minutes or more.
