The precautionary BOIL WATER NOTICE for Hari Hari water supply following the refilling of the township reservoir and mains has now been lifted.

Thank you to all residents in the community that supported our water conservation efforts.

UPDATE: Hari Hari Water Supply Friday 26 January at 12:50PM

Good afternoon Hari Hari residents, your reservoir levels have now recovered to 80% so we can remove your water alert level 4. No conservation measures are needed.

 However, the boil water notice remains in place. We may be able to lift this later today or tomorrow, but until you hear otherwise please continue to boil your water as a safeguard.

Many thanks.

The installation of our new pump for Hari Hari water treatment plant has been completed.

Your level 4 water conservation alert needs to remain in place for next 2-3 days. Please take this seriously as this is to give the reservoir and mains the appropriate time to refill and replenish.

You are also required to BOIL your water before use for drinking or food preparation over the next 2-3 days as a precautionary measure following the low reservoir levels. 

Tomorrow we will carry out tests on the water supply following the installation and begin our disinfection process.

The disinfection process will require a reasonable volume of water so it is very important that water conservation measures including no outdoor water usage continue for next 2-3 days.

We thank you for all your patience and hard work conserving water over the last few weeks.

Hari Hari township water supply is undergoing a pump replacement from 2PM – 6PM on Tuesday 23 January 2018.

This will result in no water for this four hour period while the supply is isolated during the pump installation process.

A water tanker will be parked outside the community hall while the water is out. Residents can bring clean water containers to the collection point to pick up potable water for domestic use.

The public toilet will also be shut during this time.

Once the supply is reconnected a boil water notice will be in place until further notice as a precautionary measure. Council hopes to be able to lift that boil water notice within 48 hours.
