Planned works and interruptions

We regularly carry out planned works and projects to repair and upgrade our systems.

As a result some disruption to service and traffic interruptions may occur. We try and keep these to a minimum and where possible provide advance notice in local newspapers, on this website and by direct mail.

We have not listed all our current planned works below; just the works that may impact customers from traffic or service interruptions.

The information is as up-to-date as possible but is subject to change at short notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

For more information call our Contact Centre on 1300 363 200 or see our contact us page for other contact details.

Water treatment plant process installation, Heathcote Heathcote and Tooborac Monday 18 December 2017 until further notice

We have installed an additional treatment process at the Heathcote Water Treatment Plant to ensure that any taste and odour compounds that are present in the raw water supply are treated and removed, prior to supply to customers.

The Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) dosing process removes these compounds and was installed as a proactive measure to minimise any potential impacts on the quality of drinking water that we supply to our customers.

All drinking water is treated to a standard that meets the requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines and Victoria’s Safe Drinking Water Act.

Residents will be receiving notification of the additional treatment process and we will continue to keep the community informed on this page.
