Duffy Street Drinking Water Reservoir Upgrades

Water restrictions are in place due to major works being carried out on the Duffy Street drinking water reservoir. During the period of the refurbishment works some consumers in the southern sections of Narromine may experience a reduction in water flow and pressure. Council apologises in advance for an inconvenience that these works may create but cannot emphasise enough the importance of them being carried out in relation to ongoing water quality management.
