Jim Crow Creek Sewer Spill
On Thursday 9 February, contractors hit a Central Highlands Water sewer main on Hepburn Newstead Road, Shepherds Flat, causing a partial spill into Jim Crow Creek.
Central Highlands Water crews promptly managed the spill and the clean-up and have repaired the sewer mains.
We continue to monitor and test the water quality downstream of the impacted site.
If you have taken water from the creek for stock and domestic use, we can arrange testing of your water for precautionary measures. We recommend that you wait until further notification before you resume using the water. Alternatively, please contact us if you would like replacement water.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Contact Centre on 1800 061 514.
