Boil Water Advisory – Inverloch

Friday, March 4th, 2022

South Gippsland Water in consultation with the Department of Health advise that residents of Inverloch should boil their drinking water until further notice.

This advice has been issued following reported contaminated water in Inverloch Clear Water Storage on 4 March 2022.

We have found two deceased birds and sediment in the Inverloch supply. In the interests of public safety, we’re taking a very cautious approach. The presence of the birds may indicate some sort of contamination, which we are now testing. We’re also immediately cleaning the system to bring it back online as soon as possible.
