Water supply

Higgins Contractors has provided notice to residents on Masterton’s Worksop Rd and Miriam St that the water supply may be shut down today from 9am until 3pm for water main maintenance work, and to residents on Worksop Rd and Kirton St that there’ll be a water shutdown during the same time period tomorrow. Higgins has apologised for any inconvenience this may cause and suggested that residents store water for use during this period. Because aerated water may be introduced during the recharging of the water lines, residents are advised, if water is discoloured when the water service is restored, to run the cold tap in the bath or laundry until it comes clear. The water may be restored earlier than indicated; if it’s not on again by 3pm, residents should contact Danny Hepburn [06] 370 0444 or 027 201 9406.
