Start date

Estimated duration

Hamilton, Dunkeld and Tarrington

What’s happening?

We’ve taken an 11-million-litre clear water storage tank offline at our Hamilton Water Treatment Plant to undertake maintenance work.

The work has been scheduled to take advantage of a typically low water demand period over the coming months, allowing the tank to be offline from late May to October. An adjoining two-million-litre tank will be used as Hamilton’s principal clear water storage during that period.

What can you do?

With the smaller storage tank in use, it’s particularly important that local residents and businesses become extra mindful of their water usage.

We’re also appealing to the community to report any water flows or leaks that don’t appear to be normal. You might notice them where our pipes, valves and hydrants are located underneath and along streets, nature strips or footpaths.

Reports can be made to Wannon Water’s hotline on 1300 926 666 at any time of the day or night.

What’s the benefit?

The project is part of our proactive approach to maintaining our assets, and will ensure the tank can continue to provide reliable, secure services and high quality water for the community for decades to come.
