Regular and timely maintenance of the MI water
delivery system is essential to make sure our system
can deliver water when and where you need it,
at any time of the year.
Maintenance update, 5 August 2022
Our maintenance program is continuing to run in parallel with our automation works, and other in areas where demand is low across the eastern region to minimise impacts to supply as much as possible during the season.
We are taking the opportunity while some of the channels are drained to treat aquatic weeds to reduce growth. Submerged weeds affect water flow, promote silting and cause issues with automatic regulators, which can reduce our ability to deliver water to customers.
This critical maintenance ensures channels and infrastructure are properly maintained and safe ahead of when demand picks up over the coming months.
This week other maintenance works included: inspections, repairs, desilting (pictured above), removal of debris, fabrication, outlet, pump station maintenance and offtake works.
