Water Main Replacement Project in Jindabyne and East Jindabyne
Council wishes to inform all customers in Jindabyne that the water mains replacement project work has commenced this week and is expected to be completed by 30 June 2018 in Clyde St, Jindabyne and Jerrara Drive, East Jindabyne.

This project is part of the annual mains replacement program which Council has drawn up for the next 30 years and also to progress the asset renewal program identified in the Strategic Business Plan. As part of the Integrated Planning and Reporting framework, Council has commenced work on the Asset Management Plans which will also identify the assets to be replaced based on asset life, condition and number of failures. All this will assist Council in providing better levels of service to the community.

This year, Council has programmed to replace the water mains in Clyde St, Jindabyne and Jerrara Drive, East Jindabyne based on the frequency of main break or service interruptions over the last couple of years and improve the serviceability in the area.

There would be interruptions to the water supply at different stages of the project but Council will endeavour to minimise the interruption and will also ensure customers are informed well in advance.

Council will also ensure residents are advised on the progress and the completion of the project through Council’s media advertisements.

Snowy Monaro regional Council apologies for any inconvenience that may arise during the project period.

Should you require any further information on the planned works, please contact Council on 1300 345 345.
