Flooding Creek given all clear

GIPPSLAND Water has declared a section of Flooding Creek in Sale open for access again following a recent leak in a sewer pipe that caused a small amount of sewage to enter the waterway.

The event, which occurred on February 15, was fixed within hours after Gippsland Water staff acted quickly to repair the pipe.

Gippsland Water had asked members of the public to avoid the area from the western boundary of the Port of Sale, up to about 50 metres west of the Park St bridge, as a precautionary measure.

Water quality results have shown water conditions have returned to normal and the public is able to use this area again.

Gippsland Water thanked the community for its patience and co-operation.
