Main Canal shutdown at start of 2017 winter shutdown period
We will be draining the Main Canal at the end of May 2017. This is to allow for modernisation works and other critical maintenance. Town supply will not be impacted but customers should plan their winter water needs around the Main Canal remaining empty for the entire winter shut down period - ie. until at least the end of July. The Sturt Canal will not be drained, but will still have sections closed at certain periods of the 2017 winter shutdown to allow for annual maintenance works.
