Council continues toward solution to water discolouration

May 7, 2019

Council advise that they are still working toward a solution to the discolouration of water in the Young area.

Council have today cleaned the water mains via an air scouring method and have identified the source of the discolouration at the Goldenfields Water reservoir.

This means that the water discolouration issue will remain until the Goldenfields Water reservoir is cleaned and refilled.

In the meantime, Goldenfields Water and Council are working to create a temporary bypass of the reservoir and feed water directly into the Young reticulation system. This is a temporary measure that will allow a clearer supply to the affected areas.

Council is working actively with Goldenfields Water to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and will keep residents updated on progress.
