IMPROVEMENT TO TOWN WATER SUPPLY - GOONDIWINDI
Improvement to Town Water Supply - Goondiwindi
Council is currently finalising works in Goondiwindi to improve the towns low pressure issues. These works include the construction of a new booster pump system located at Councils George Street, Water Filtration Plant.
The new booster pumps will increase the town water pressure in accordance with the Water Supply Code of Australia 3.1 requirements.
The construction work is expected to be completed by the end of June or early July 2021. Following this date Council will start using the pumps and gradually increase the pressure of the supply until we can generally meet fire compliance requirements throughout Goondiwindi.
Residents may expect intermittent water interruptions as the works progress and can then expect higher water pressures and flow rates from the completion of the works. Residents can expect higher water pressures and flow rates from early to mid August and should monitor their properties for water leaks in the following days and weeks as the new works come fully on line.
Council will continue to provide updates around water interruptions and the date of finalisation of these works.
