Water carting - Dingee
We are experiencing poor raw water quality due to increased levels of Blue Green Algae (BGA) detected in the raw water supply at Dingee.
We are commencing water carting this week to supplement the town supply until raw water quality improves, which we expect to take several weeks.
Some customers may have experienced odour from the water supply.
We have increased our water quality testing program to monitor the situation more closely.
Customers in Dingee are reminded that your township water supply is non-potable (un-treated) and is not deemed suitable for drinking or cooking purposes.
