Moama and Mathoura Raw and Filtered Water flushing 2023

Published on 25 January 2023


Monday 30 January marks the beginning of this year’s raw and filtered water main flushing program for Moama and Mathoura.

The flushing process is designed to wash out any accumulated dissolved mineral sediments that may be sitting in the water mains.

While flushing is being undertaken, customers may notice discoloured water and reduced water pressure in their homes, businesses and gardens. This is normal. The discolouration will clear up and the pressure will come back as we move into different areas. The discoloured water does not pose a health risk.

Our teams are encouraging water customers to check for discolouration, particularly prior to using washing machines. If you do experience discoloured water, please run the cold water tap for 5 to 10 minutes until it clears. If the discolouration continues past this timeframe, please contact Council on 1300 087 004 and lodge a service request.

Daily updates will be provided on Council’s Facebook page advising the areas we will be flushing the following day. In addition, we will also have signs displayed at the entrance to each area while flushing is occurring.

It is expected that the program will be completed by the end of February 2023.
