MEDIA RELEASE WALGETT WATER SUPPLY UPDATE
Council wishes to advise Walgett residents that the town's filtered water supply was successfully
changed over to River Water Wednesday 3rd May 2023 at 8am. The river water is responding
effectively to treatment, and water quality is currently in compliance with critical control point
parameters (as per the Council Drinking Water Management Plan)
NSW Department of Planning and Environmental - Water along with the Council will continue to
closely monitor the water quality and the performance of the Water Treatment Plant.
There will be a delay in complete changeover to river water in the reticulation network because
there is a few days' worth of water in the network that needs to be flushed out first, there will
likely be a delay in the change in taste of the water for possibly up to early next week.
Should you require further information please contact the Council's Engineering / Technical
Services Department on (02) 6828 1000.
