As part of Council’s ongoing water supply improvement program, a water main replacement is programmed to take place beneath Thomatis Creek at Holloways Beach.

These works will commence from late January 2019 and are expected to be completed by mid-March 2019, subject to favourable weather conditions.

Working hours will typically be between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, and 7am to 4pm on Saturday. Any after hours work being undertaken will be on an "as required" basis.

Council appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time.
