Areas supplied by this system will experience an interruption in their water supply. Crews have been dispatched works have begun water supply will be restored as works are completed. When the supply is restored, it will take a few hours for the supply and pressure to normalise and in some cases customers at the extreme ends of the network and at high elevations may still experience difficulties which will be addressed as pressures normalize.

Please note the aforementioned are subject to change based on the availability of Water supply, whilst we will maintain the supply of water to the areas, there may be inconsistencies due to demand or damages which may occur on the lines.
WASCO ….water is life! Committed to meeting customers’ needs.
