Leakage Reduction


  • Involves the decommissioning and replacement of 980 metres of old and damaged cast iron water mains
  • The existing problematic pipes will be replaced with new modern high density polyethylene (plastic) pipes
  • Works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the street to customers’ property boundaries connecting it to the customers’ water supply
  • Where there is lead on the public side of the service connection this will be removed
