Daly River flood response05 February 2018
With flood waters starting to slowly recede in Daly River, Power and Water crews are assessing the area with a view to reconnecting power as soon as it is safe to do so.
Around 40 houses will need a qualified electrician to check the properties and issue a Certificate of Compliance to before Power and Water can safely reconnect power.
The current precautionary boil water alert will remain in place until later in the week when the water system has been repaired, flushed and disinfected.
Homes and sewers that have been inundated with flood water will need cleaning once the water levels have dropped sufficiently.
For more information about preparing, responding and recovering from an emergency go to the SecureNT website.
