Burst water main in Ocean Grove

Recent water main bursts have affected the water supply to customers in Parker Street, Wallington Road and Guthridge Street.

As a result, we are fast-tracking the replacement of the water main to ensure the system operates efficiently and effectively into the future.

To prepare for the upcoming replacement works, we will be installing a temporary water connection to those customers to minimise any ongoing supply disruptions in the weeks ahead.

Work to install valves for the temporary water connection will take place tomorrow, Wednesday 23 May.

This will result in an interruption water supply between 9 am and 1 pm.  Water supply will be restored following the work.

Bottled water will be available for customers at the worksite established on Parker Street (near number 21).  Customers can also access water from a temporary standpipe in the naturestrip between Parker Street and Guthridge Street.

On Thursday 24 May, the temporary water connection will be installed (this will be a thin plastic pipe outside the front of properties), allowing the existing water main to be taken out of service. 

The temporary supply will be required until the new water main is installed.

We have started planning the replacement project and will be working hard to get it up and running as soon as possible.

We will provide customers with an update once we have confirmed a contractor for this work.
