Works are scheduled to take place at Tongala Water Treatment Plant on Saturday.

The water supply will not be affected, but there may be fluctuations in water pressure while work is done.

Works will involve the installation of a flow meter on the fill pipe that runs up the side of the water tower, which will require a crane and work crew to be on-site on Saturday.

A new valve will also be installed onto the outlet of the water tower as part of the compliance requirements for fluoride installations.

Goulburn Valley Water project manager Neil Healey said the works are part of an ongoing fluoride plant upgrade which has been underway at the site since mid 2013.

The alternative pumping arrangements are expected to be in place from 9am until about 3pm on Saturday, April 5.

‘‘During this period the town’s water supply will bypass the water tower and water will be fed to the town via a temporary pump arrangement,’’ Mr Healey said.
