The Water Reticulation Team have been busy with water main breaks in the Shire in the past two weeks.

From the ground being dry and lacking moisture,  ground movement caused water main bursts creating 80 work requests.

Level 3 water restrictions will continue until the monsoonal rain conditions commence within the region.
