Benefits

A Reliable Water Supply

  • Replacement of water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area

Reduced Leaks

  • Replacement of water mains and service connections will eliminate existing leaks and reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground

Improved Operation and Maintenance

  • These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future

Steps

  • The works will involve the replacement of approximately 1.55 kilometres of ageing water mains
  • The existing pipes will be replaced with new modern high density polyethylene plastic pipes
  • The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the water supply
  • Trenchless technology is proposed as the pipeline replacement method to reduce the potential impact and traffic disruption due to these construction works
  • We expect these works to take approximately 8 weeks to complete
