Water Supply Mains Cleaning – South Ayr, Brandon & Rossiters Hill Areas – between 4 and 11 July 2017

Burdekin Shire Council will be undertaking planned water main cleaning works on mains in the South Ayr, Brandon and Rossiters Hill areas as part of an ongoing strategy to reduce incidents of dirty water in these areas as follows:

  • Tuesday 4 July 2017 – 9.00am. Scouring of the major 500mm trunk water main from the South Ayr Water Reservoir to Black Bridge. These works require the South Ayr Water Treatment Plant to be taken offline for a period of approximately four hours on that day with residents of Ayr relying on bores at Nelsons Lagoon to maintain water supply services.
  • Wednesday 5 July 2017 – 9.00am. Scouring of the 375mm trunk water main in Railway Street from Burke Street to MacMillan Street, Ayr. These works will result in a drop in water pressure between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm. Customers that will lose supply will be notified individually via letter drop.
  • Thursday 6 July 2017 – 9.00am. Scouring of the 300mm trunk water main servicing Brandon. These works will result in a loss of normal water supply for up to four hours to residents in Klondyke Road, Robins Road, Tamarind Close, Albert Street and Robert Street areas.
  • Tuesday 11 July 2017 – 9.00am. Scouring of the 250mm trunk water main servicing Rossiter’s Hill area.

These works will result in a loss of normal water pressure for up to four hours to residents in Rossiter’s Hill and Old Clare Road areas.

The assistance of residents is requested in limiting water usage to essential purposes only to avoid loss of supply to the wider area during these works.

Residents of Ayr, Brandon and Rossiters Hill areas may experience water discolouration during these planned works. It is advisable to delay washing of clothes etc., for up to two days after work is completed, if possible.

Council regrets any inconvenience that may be caused to residents as a result of these necessary maintenance works.
