Extreme weather event

  • All region

The do not drink advisory for Trentham has been lifted, following consultation with the Department of Health.

Your water is safe to drink. 

The 'do not drink tap water' advise was issued as a precaution following the severe weather event this week, which impacted our Trentham Water Treatment Plant and access to locate a burst water main that may have caused ingress into the water supply network.

We have located the burst water main this afternoon and have isolated for repair.  Water quality testing has confirmed that the water supply is safe.

We recommend that customers flush internal taps for 2 minutes to draw fresh water into their internal plumbing before use.

We thank all our Trentham customers for their patience and understanding as we have worked to resolve the issue.

There will be no further updates provided regarding this incident.  Customers experiencing any issues with their water supply, please call our Customer Support Team on 1300 363 200.

Maintenance hole inspections, Castlemaine & Kyneton

  • Castlemaine & Kyneton

We are carrying out a sewer maintenance hole inspection program around parts of Castlemaine and Kyneton. 

This is in preparation for a cleaning program in these areas in late 2021. 

We plan to inspect approximately 450 maintenance holes in Castlemaine and 150 in Kyneton. 

Some maintenance holes are located on private property and we are contacting these customers directly via letter. 

This program is preliminary inspections only and any need for further work will be communicated with those affected. 

Boat ramp closure, Upper Coliban Reservoir

  • Premier Mine Road, Upper Coliban Reservoir

Please be aware the boat ramp at Premier Mine Road at Upper Coliban Reservoir is temporarily closed.

This is due to receding water levels at the reservoir. Those with a kayak, canoe or small portable craft are still able to access the reservoir via the spillway access point. A map of this location can be found here.

Further works to extend the Premier Mine Road boat ramp to a length of 30 metres will be considered when there are suitable ground conditions and water levels.

Please note all other Coliban Water reservoir on-water access points remain open.

We apologise for this inconvenience.
