The Team from Wellington Water

The bore pump has been replaced and water is pumping into the reservoir again. The outdoor water ban remains in place until the reservoir is full again and everything is consistently operating as it should.

Thanks to the water conservation efforts in the township, the consumption has reduced significantly.

Keep up the good work!
