FAULT AT CHURCHILL WATER TREATMENT MAY CAUSE DISRUPTIONS IN PARTS OF THE CITY
The City is currently experiencing difficulties supplying water to certain storage reservoirs due to a fault at the Churchill Water Treatment Works.
This places the system at risk as storage conditions remain low due to the ongoing drought. Contractors are currently on site assessing requirements to execute repairs.
Areas that could experience low pressure or disruptions include:
1. Parts of Walmer
2. Walmer Downs
3. Mangold Park
4. Glen Hurd
5. Newton Park
7. Parts of Cotsworld
8. Parts of Schauderville
10. Mill Park
11. Parts of Central
14. Deal party
15. North End
The situation will be monitored and water tankers will be made available if reservoir storage levels deplete. Their positions will be communicated throughout social media and can also be enquired from 0800205050.
Consumers are requested to use water sparingly and not to stockpile as this will accelerate the depletion of storage.
