As part of our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) is implementing additional precautions so we can continue to make sure customers have the support they need while ensuring we deliver our essential water services.
From Monday, March 23, 2020 we are restricting public access to our GMW offices including the Connections Project office and visitor centres located at our storages.
As you know, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is driving rapid change. At GMW we are very aware of striking the right balance between providing an accessible service to our customers, and the safety of our team, stakeholders and the broader community.
We’re doing this to ensure we’re maximising social distancing advice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
For our customers we will continue to deliver the usual high levels of customer service via a range of other means.
