By Mark Beale

WHITSUNDAY residents are being advised to conserve water following the announcement that SunWater will cease discharging water into the Proserpine River between 7am on Monday December 15 and 7am, Wednesday December 17.

The shutdown is for the purpose of conducting essential maintenance.

Whitsunday mayor Jennifer Whitney said Council was working to minimise the effect of this shutdown on all customers in the region but that residents in Bowen, Proserpine, Mt Julian, Cannonvale, Jubilee Pocket, Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour were being asked to minimise water usage from 6pm on Sunday to 6pm on Wednesday

“Council has been advised by SunWater that this is the minimum time required by SunWater to undertake the maintenance and Council will endeavour to provide updates on the progress of SunWater’s work as we receive them,” she said.

SunWater North Region Service Manager Jim Mummery thanked residents for their understanding.

“We understand there may be some inconvenience and will make every effort to minimise the impact on residents,” he said.
