From 11.59pm Tuesday 31 August, we will be entering Alert Level 3. As an essential service or crews have been out doing essential work during lockdown, to ensure that our water services continue to run smoothly. In Alert Level 3, our critical projects will be starting back up. This means you may see more of our workers in your area.
All projects running through Level 3 are critical works, which have been prioritised due to a specific set of criteria. These include potential risks to health and safety or the environment, faults in the network causing damage to public or private property, or an unacceptable impact on customers if work did not commence.
All of our essential workers are taking the following safety precautions, except in circumstances where it is operationally unsafe to do so:
Physical distancing of 1 metre apart between crew members and 2 metres apart from the public.
Mask wearing when physical distance cannot be achieved.
Additional hygiene practices such as hand sanitizing.
If you see our workers out and about, please be kind, and continue to give them their space to avoid bursting their bubbles.
