Leakage Reduction


  • Works will involve the decommissioning and replacement of approximately 850 meters of ageing cast iron mains
  • The existing 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/road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customer’s water supply
  • The works will commence this week and are expected to take approximately 8 weeks to complete


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 water quality

  • Removing existing old cast iron from the public 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
