Hunter Water (NSW) is under the pump organising generators and power supply to the region’s vital wastewater pumping stations.
Recent ‘super-storms’ that have lashed the Hunter Valley region have left many people still without basic services, placing pressure on the area’s utilities and resources.
In particular, the weather has resulted in Hunter Water experiencing problems with some areas of the wastewater network due to power failures and flooding. However, the company is endeavouring to restore normal operations as quickly as possible.
Hunter Water is working closely with Ausgrid in order to restore power supply and is organising generators for wastewater pumping stations.
