Project goal:

To renew around 2 kilometres of ageing water pipes and property service pipes in East Perth and Victoria Park.

Delivery Date:

March – August 2020

What's happening?

We are renewing the ageing water pipes across the Perth metropolitan area, including the City of Perth and Town of Victoria Park. This essential work to replace ageing water pipes will prevent water outages, leaks and breaks, and will help future-proof the areas water supplies for decades to come.

Water pipes across Perth are being renewed in priority order on an ‘as needs’ basis. The pipe renewal priority is based on the number of leaks or breaks a pipe has experienced, the condition, age and material of the pipe, as well as the number of customer’s relying on the pipe for water. Where possible, the scheduling of the pipe renewal work is carried out in conjunction with local councils and other utilities.

As well as replacing pipes along the streets, we will also replace the ageing property services pipes that connect properties to the water network. These pipes will be replaced up to the water meter.
All customers to be impacted will receive prior notifications detailing when work will be taking place.
