Consumers on the AWAMOKO Water Supply are advised to CONSERVE WATER until further notice.
Starting from 7 June, Hydrotech will be carrying out cleaning and inspections (using a CCTV camera) of sewer mains in the following streets in Oamaru:
The inspections help identify blockages or breaks in the pipe and give us a general idea of the condition of the pipe and how its performing so we can work out if it needs replaced.
Most of this work will be carried out during the day, however some will need to be done at night when flows are low.
Properties affected by the works will be notified by letter drop. Property owners should not notice anything while the work is being carried out however they will be asked to keep their toilet lid down and weighted with a heavy book, as sometimes the cleaning process can cause blowback of water (only water from the toilet bowl not sewage).
