We have crews on the ground flushing mains in affected areas, and we’ve increased our water sampling and testing regimes within our city.

We’ve also negotiated with the dam operator, the Murray Darling Basin Authority, to change how water is being released from the dam.

These changes saw some of the water released occur over the top of dam wall to enable better aeration of the discharged waters.

By changing the combination of flows from Hume Dam, we have been able to improve the quality of the source water and reduce the levels of iron and manganese within our piped water network by 40%.
