A series of leaks have left homes and businesses with water dripping out of the tank at their taps.
A spokeswoman for the council said: “This is a rare occurrence and we are currently investigating and investigating to determine what caused the issue.”
She said the council’s water supply was regularly inspected by a third party and the source of the leaks had not been determined.
The spokeswoman added: “We are working with the council to determine the source.”
Ms O’Connell said she had been told by her water supplier that the leaks occurred at an area called the South Coast Line.
“I don’t think they should be leaking on the main line,” she said.
“You don’t want to have that happen.”
The only solution is to use your own filter, and that’s not a problem.
“The water company said it had received a number of complaints from residents in the area, with one woman complaining of a “very heavy and watery flow” of water.
A spokesman for South Coast Water said it was working with water authorities in South Australia to ensure the problem was contained and would take steps to address the problem if necessary.”
If there is a repeat of this issue, we will take immediate action to isolate the leak and ensure that no-one is impacted,” the spokesman said.
The council said a number more leaks had been found, and would be fixed if they were not repaired.
