Benefits

A Reliable Water Supply

  • Replacing the old water mains with new water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers in the area

Reduced Leaks

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

Improved Water Quality

  • Removing existing old cast iron and lead from the water network and replacing them with new plastic pipes will reduce the risk of contamination

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 at O’Callaghan Terrace involve the decommissioning of approximately 245 metres of old cast iron back yard water mains
  • Aproximately 188 metres of new water mains will be constructed along the public road and new service connections will be installed from the new water main to each customer’s property
  • A survey is required at each property within this community to assess the current water connection arrangement for that property and discuss the best way to connect the new service to the customer’s home
