Yass Valley Council has put out a timely alert warning of intermittent planned overnight water outages in Yass this week. We have the list of affected streets below.

Council will be carrying out maintenance works on installations to the trunk mains at the Yass Water Treatment Plant overnight from 11:30 pm Wednesday, 24 March 2021 to 4:00 am Thursday, 25 March 2021 and to the DeMestre Street Main from 11:30 pm Thursday, 25 March 2021 to 4:00 am Friday, 26 March 2021, weather permitting.

This important and necessary additional work is required for the commissioning of the Yass to Murrumbateman water transfer system.

Council has scheduled the works after midnight to reduce the impact of disruption to residents and we have contacted all vulnerable people in the affected areas. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, however, the disruptions will be intermittent and we will be working as quickly as possible to fully restore water to your property.

Unlike the previous overnight water outages earlier this month, the likelihood of discolouration will be minimal as the pipes will not need to be emptied. However, if you do experience continued discolouration after a few minutes, or if you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Council Customer Service on 02 6226 1477 and we will work hard to rectify the problem.

11:30pm Wednesday, 24 March 2021 to 4:00am Thursday, 25 March 2021
