Water Meter Replacement Program – Proston and Nanango
As part of Council’s routine maintenance programs, Council will be conducting a water meter replacement program in Proston and Nanango.
This replacement program will run from Monday 30 March 2020 it is expected to be completed by Tuesday 30 June 2020.
Water meters are mechanical devices that wear with usage and age. Council has a proactive replacement program for water meters which are nearing the end of their useful life. It is an ongoing program that ensures your water meter readings (and your bills) remain as accurate as possible.
Water meter replacement depends on the specifications of the individual meter. It is normal that your meter may be replaced but the meter belonging to your neighbour may not.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this work may cause, and thank you in advance for your patience.
The following steps may assist following water maintenance works:
• Flush your plumbing by running inside and outside taps;
• Avoid using the washing machine or dishwasher should water be discoloured.
Frequently asked questions:
• What causes discolouration in water? Water mains maintenance, repairs or flushing may result in sediment being disturbed in the water pipes, resulting in the tap water appearing discoloured. In some instances, organic material found in the main water source may also cause discolouration.
• Who pays for the water lost whilst water mains are repaired or replaced? The cost is covered by Council’s maintenance budget.
• Can the water lost during water mains repairs or maintenance be recycled? No, Council does not recycle the water for public health reasons.
