Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) is requesting water consumers in Werris Creek to assist by limiting water consumption from midnight, Wednesday 17 January until midnight, Thursday, 18 January, when during the day, which will temporarily interrupt power and affect the Werris Creek town water supply.
“During the period there is no power to the Quipolly Dam pump station, it will be unable to supply water to the town’s water treatment plant. This will result in the water levels in the Werris Creek reservoirs continuing to fall until power is restored,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“Council is requesting Werris Creek residents to be mindful of their water usage during this period to ensure the water storages can return to their normal capacity as soon as possible,” he said.
“With the hot weather being experienced lately, this is a timely reminder for residents to be mindful of their water usage because of the current Werris Creek treatment plant’s capacity limitations. Council is continuing the planning for the construction of new Quipolly Water Treatment Plant which will remedy this problem,” he continued.
“LPSC is committed to working with our community to achieve sustainable water use across the Shire.” he said.
If you have any questions regarding the interruption to the power supply please phone Essential Energy on 13 20 80. For water enqueries, please contact LPSC’s Customer Service Team on (02) 6746 1755 during business hours,” Councillor Hope concluded
