Shire of Capel working with DWER to address Residential Water Bore Issues in Gelorup

Published on Thursday, 1 February 2024 at 2:14:00 PM

The Shire has been alerted to concerns raised by residents in the Gelorup area regarding issues with their residential water bores, with reports indicating a noticeable change, including the availability of water and water pressure.

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) holds responsibility for managing the State’s water resources. In response to the residents' concerns, the Shire is taking action on behalf of the Gelorup community by collaborating with DWER to gain a comprehensive understanding of the situation.

Recognising the need for collaborative efforts, the Shire and DWER are working together to gather more detailed information from affected members of the community. This involves not only identifying the residents' locations but also a detailed understanding the specifics of their individual bore setups. DWER will then generate a heat map of the impacted area to gain a clearer understanding of the extent of the problem.

The Shire remains committed to keeping the community informed throughout this process and will provide timely updates as more information becomes available.

Any resident affected by this water bore issue is encouraged to complete the survey or make direct contact with the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation to discuss their specific circumstances.
