A bushfire burning near the Geraldton Mount Magnet Road today caused a power outage to Water Corporation’s borefield, which supplies drinking water to Mullewa.

Power has now been restored but the tanks that supply drinking water to the town are now low.

We have water tankers refilling the tanks, but this takes time.

We are asking Mullewa residents to be careful of their non-essential water use over the next 48 hours

Please avoid using water outside the home on gardens, and try to conserve water indoors if possible.

Water Corporation thanks Mullewa residents for their cooperation.
