Planned works and interruptions

We regularly carry out planned works and projects to repair and upgrade our systems. As a result some disruption to service and traffic interruptions may occur. We try and keep these to a minimum and where possible provide advance notice in local newspapers, on this website and by direct mail.

This is not a complete list of current planned works, just works that may impact customers from traffic or service interruptions. The information is as up-to-date as possible but is subject to change at short notice.
For more information call our Customer Support Team on 1300 363 200 (1300 COLIBAN) or see our contact us page for other contact details.

Chlorination program, Castlemaine water supply

Castlemaine, Chewton, Campbells Creek, Elphinstone, Taradale, Harcourt, Fryerstown, Barkers Creek, Maldon, Yapeen, Newstead and Guildford October 2018 - until further notice

We have changed the way we treat the Castlemaine water supply network, 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.

Water quality data over the eight months to May 2019 is largely showing an improvement in chlorine levels within the 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.
