Planned water outage for Chatham

MidCoast Council

Residents in parts of Chatham will experience an interruption to their water supply on Tuesday 15 June while MidCoast Council works to repair water assets in the area.

The town water supply will be isolated at various points to undertake the critical repair work, with the interruption expected to begin at 8pm and finish around midnight.

“We’ve consulted with critical customers who’ll be impacted by the work and found this is the most suitable time,” said Council’s Director of Infrastructure and Engineering Services, Rob Scott.

“Unfortunately, we can’t undertake the work without having some level of impact on our customers, but it’s important we get these repairs done in a planned way to reduce the risks of a much longer interruption in the future.”

It is expected that residents in the following areas will experience no water pressure during this time:

• Chatham Avenue from the corner of Oxley Street to Plover Street

• Lyndhurst Street from Oxley Street to the corner of Pitt Street

• Crescent Avenue from Lyndhurst Street to rail overpass

“We apologise for the inconvenience and urge customers who experience any issues as a result of the planned shutdown to contact our Customer Service Team on 7955 7777,” said Mr Scott.
