Discharge valves shut off

We advise that at 8:45am this morning we have stopped discharging diluted wastewater into the city rivers.

We were constantly monitoring the manholes and from yesterday started shutting the valves and as levels lowered. This morning the last of the values was closed.

Please note that contact with water in our city rivers and beaches after heavy rain should be restricted for at least 5 days as the bacterial quality of the water is poor.
