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 in Marian Park will involve the decommissioning of approximately 332 metres of aged back yard water mains
  • It is likely that the service connections currently serving these properties are made from lead
  • All new service connections will be made with modern high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic pipes to ensure a safer, more reliable water supply
