Today scheduled cleaning of the Gilbert Plains Municipal water reservoirs is starting.

The 2-week process can cause low water flow and water discolouration due to the disturbance of sediment during the process.

The water will still be safe to drink, the town will be supplied with the rural water directly from the pipeline while the tanks are being cleaned.

The reservoirs will be cleaned, disinfected and tested for water quality before being put back in production.

The bulk water station in Gilbert Plains is closed until February 5th, 2020 because of the cleaning.

Residents needing treated water will have to go to Dauphin or Grandview.
