Possible water disruptions for Cleveland and Ormiston on 10-11 September

Redland City Council is advising residents of possible water disruptions in Cleveland and Ormiston this weekend (Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September) as the result of further work being undertaken on the local water network. This is a continuation of recent works that affected some Cleveland and Ormiston properties on the 27-28 August.

Council’s General Manager of Infrastructure and Operations Gary Soutar said the potential water disruptions were the result of scheduled work being undertaken by Seqwater.

“Seqwater will be finalising the installation of a flow meter in Alexandra Hills, which requires part of the system to be isolated, resulting in reduced water pressure for most of Cleveland and Ormiston,” he said.

“Once again, we don’t expect a total loss of water, however residents will experience reduced water pressure from 5pm Saturday until midday Sunday as the network is returned to normal.

“Residents may also notice the water is discoloured from 4am until midday Sunday due to harmless biofilm being removed from the inside of water mains as water pressure returns.”

Mr Soutar said while the water was safe, residents may wish to fill some containers with water before 5pm Saturday 10 September and avoid doing laundry on Sunday 11 September because of the discolouration that could temporarily affect the colour of clothing.

“There is no need to boil the water and there is no danger from consuming it or showering in it,” he said. “Council is doing everything to ensure residents know about and are prepared for the work, including writing to each affected resident and publishing a full list of affected streets on our website.”

A list of affected streets is also included below.

Residents can find further details by contacting the customer service team on 3829 8999.

Seqwater is undertaking further work on the water network upgrade in the Redlands. Areas of Cleveland and Ormiston may experience reduced water pressure and water discolouration during the completion of the work. This is a continuation of recent works.
