The Boil Water Advisory for Fish Creek residents is lifted

South Gippsland Water has rescinded the Boil Water Advisory for Fish Creek after receiving all clear from our water monitoring.

Fish Creek residents no longer need to boil their tap water. We’d encourage you to run your household and garden taps for a few minutes to help clean the lines.

On Thursday 4 July, a contractor damaged a water main in Fish Creek near Old Waratah Road.

The break resulted in many Fish Creek residents being without water or experiencing low water pressure for around three hours from 3pm when the incident occurred.

Our crews immediately attended the scene to replace the damaged water main section.

As a precaution, we declared a Boil Water Advisory for the town.

To assist Fish Creek residents and businesses, we set up a water trailer offering free drinking water opposite Fish Creek Primary School.  We’ll remove the trailer later today now the Advisory has been lifted.

We’d like to thank the Fish Creek community for their patience during the incident.

While we do what we can to keep our communities informed, like sending these emails, SMS messages, conducting door knocks and updating our website and social media, word-of-mouth between neighbours, friends and family is extraordinarily helpful in an incident like this.

Thank you again for your support. Remember you can follow us during an incident or at any time on our Facebook page or stay up to date by going to our website System Updates and Alerts – South Gippsland Water (
