Update on water situation in Blanco, Glen Barrie, Heatherlands, Heather Park

AUGUST 31, 2016

The George Municipality on Wednesday morning said that repairs are still continuing on the 450 main line behind the Hawthorndene area. 

"The night team gave over to the day team. Our team are working non-stop but the area is very inaccessible and in difficult terrain," the municipality said.

"A water truck is parked at Milly’s Superette and a water tanker is moving through the area of Blanco. 

"A second tanker will be dispersed later in the morning. These areas are experiencing low water pressure and restricted water. At this stage it is still not clear how long it will take to fix the problem. George Municipality again apologizes for the inconvenience and thank the community for their patience."
