Supporting Community & Economy – $1.8M Creditors Paid

Monday, April 6th, 2020

As an essential service provider, South Gippsland Water is working to ensure that water and sewerage services operate reliably during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Dedicated South Gippsland Water staff are working remotely across all facets of the organisation to deliver a seamless service to our customers.

As a state owned water corporation, South Gippsland Water is doing what it can to support community and the economy.  Recently the Finance Team has activated steps and is aiming to pay creditors within 5 business days.  As a result, last week more than $1.8M was paid to creditors and suppliers getting money flowing into the local economy.

Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said, “Clearing the majority of our creditors last week and working to pay invoices quickly will help support suppliers and small businesses with cash-flow during these challenging times”.

Whilst the Corporation’s offices are closed, staff are still working, including our Customer Service Team who are still available on 1300 851 636 to assist customers with any queries or concerns.
