Yarra Valley Water

“We’ve become aware of a potential water quality issue affecting 88 suburbs due to electrical damage caused by storms overnight. Some water may have entered our drinking water supply network that had not been treated to the usual standard.

As a precautionary measure, we’re advising residents in those suburbs to boil their water before they drink – residents should bring water to a rolling boil before drinking, washing and preparing food, preparing baby formula, brushing teeth and making ice until further notice.
