"The water quality will not be affected and
remains safe to drink," he said.
"The work is expected to take a few weeks to
complete and temporary storage tankers will be
used to support the local water supply."
Locals are asked to limit water consumption
during the maintenance period by minimising all
outdoor water usage, using water in and around the
house sparingly and avoiding washing vehicles.
Mr Bonnett said SA Water advises residents to
only use water for essential purposes, such as show-
ering and food preparation.
"We apologise for any inconvenience and appre-
ciate the community's cooperation during this peri-
od," he said.
