Media Statement: 3AW conversation regarding the leak on Nicholson Street
City West Water is aware of an ongoing leak at the intersection of Nicholson and Johnston Streets in Fitzroy.
The leak appears to have increased slightly and we are actively investigating options to address it.
Now that we are through the peak summer demand period, we are isolating the water main with the aim of stopping the leak, while we continue planning the long term solution.
Any options for repair need to balance impacts on broader water supply, traffic, public transport and the local community, given the built-up nature of the area.
