Hilltops Council are working with Goldenfields Water to find both short and long term solutions to discoloured water in Young.
Recent investigations into discoloured water notifications concluded the discoloured water was coming from a single reservoir. The discolouration is thought to be a result of the water being disturbed by external factors creating an elevated level of suspended solids.
Goldenfields Water implemented works to bypass the reservoir in order for staff to empty and inspect the reservoir to ensure no further incidents occur.
Both Hilltops Council and Goldenfields Water assure residents the water is safe to drink despite the discolouration and tests carried out confirm the water quality is within normal operating parameters.
