Water Mains cleaning by air scouring

10/10/2019
Residents of Young within the Hilltops Council water reticulation system are advised that Council will commence cleaning of the water mains by air scouring to minimise discolouration of water supply during the summer months.
 
The air scouring process may cause some temporary discoloration, loss of pressure or supply interruption. This may also affect adjacent areas. The activity will be clearly signed by temporary road signs in the streets during the cleaning process. The works will start each morning at approximately 8:30am and should end no later than 6pm each day. Consumers are advised to avoid using their washing machines and dish washing machines during these hours when the works are in your area.

Air Scouring Program Map here 

Following air scouring, consumers should check their water supply and flush their own pipes by running a backyard tap until the water returns to normal. There may be some trapped air in the house water pipes. The air may cause some splutters and spits as it comes out of the taps. If this happens, run your tap until all the trapped air leaves the pipe. Clearing the pipes of trapped air and dirty water should only take a couple of minutes. To prevent air entering the household water system it is recommended that taps are not opened during the scouring period.
