Chlorination program and water mains flushing, Castlemaine water supply

  • Castlemaine, Chewton, Campbells Creek, Elphinstone, Taradale, Harcourt, Fryerstown, Barkers Creek, Maldon, Yapeen, Newstead and Guildford

We will be carrying out some targeted treatment and water mains flushing works in the towns of Yapeen, Guildford and Campbells Creek from Tuesday 27 August to Thursday 29 August 2019. 

There will be no interruption to water supply but customers may notice a change to the water taste and odour during the works period.

This is part of the wider chlorination program for the Castlemaine water supply network which is now 9 months into the planned 12 month trial in order to improve disinfection and maintain chlorine residuals across the entire supply network.

The treatment method is known as free chlorination, or chlorination. The chlorination treatment method itself is not a trial, it is a tried and tested treatment method. We have been trialling the effectiveness of this method in the Castlemaine water supply network.

We continue to monitor the chlorine dosing rate and work to improve chlorine levels at the extremities of our network. The water is safe to drink and meets the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
