We have started repairing a damaged sewer pipe beneath the Anglesea River.
A leak was detected in the pipe, which crosses the Anglesea River between River Reserve Road and Wray Street, last week.
The pipe was immediately switched off and warning signs were temporarily placed along the river to alert the community about the spill.
We have been regularly testing water quality near the spill site since the leak was detected.
Initial tests showed only moderately elevated levels of E.coli near the spill site.
Within 48 hours of the spill, this reading fell to be within safe levels.
We are confident the spill did not pose a risk to the community.
The repair is difficult and will take several days to complete.
