Horsham Water restored after pumps were turned off
HORSHAM residents had little water pressure and in some cases no water at all on Thursday morning after GWMWater turned off the pumps for maintenance.
The water main into Horsham was switched off for maintenance work, and once the work was complete the pumps could not be switched back on.
GWMWater Executive Manager, Andrew Rose, said this is first time this has ever happened.
"We were doing some maintenance on the main into Horsham yesterday and it required turning the pumps off," Mr Rose said.
"The pumps wouldn't start again this morning but they have kicked in now.
"So the consequence, there was low pressure and some instances no water in the mains in Horsham and throughout the course of the morning that will improve as the mains recharge."
