Statement from VicWater CEO – Current Covid-19 lockdown

The Victorian water sector continues to support efforts to contain the current spread of the virus through wastewater testing.

We have all the necessary contingencies in place to manage the COVID-19 event and Victorians continue to receive safe and reliable water and wastewater services.

Our sector has strong COVID-safe plans in place, including appropriate contact tracing systems, and we continue to monitor the list of exposure sites.

Across Victoria our sector is leading the way in supporting customers experiencing vulnerability and recognise that this current lockdown may cause financial hardship for some communities. If you are experiencing hardship, please contact your local water corporation who will take you through ways that they can provide support with your bills.
