Project goal:

To renew around 40 kilometres of ageing water mains across the City of Stirling, City of Bayswater, City of South Perth, City of Gosnells, City of Melville, City of Cockburn, City of Canning, Town of Victoria Park, Town of Bassendean, Town of Cambridge, City of Fremantle, City of Joondalup, City of Armadale, City of Belmont, City of Kwinana, City of Mandurah, City of Nedlands, City of Swan, City of Wanneroo and Shire of Murray.

Delivery Date:

Late July 2020 – February 2021

What's happening?

In May 2020 we began preliminary work to renew around 40 kilometres of ageing water mains across numerous streets in the Perth metro area.

Work will take place in a staged approach across 20 Local Government Authorities. All customers to be impacted will receive prior notification detailing when work will be taking place along their street.

This essential work to replace these ageing water mains will help prevent leaks and breaks and will improve the security and reliability of Perth’s water supply for decades to come.

Where is this happening?

Replacement of the ageing water mains will take place across City of Stirling, City of Bayswater, City of South Perth, City of Gosnells, City of Melville, City of Cockburn, City of Canning, Town of Victoria Park, Town of Bassendean, Town of Cambridge, City of Fremantle, City of Joondalup, City of Armadale, City of Belmont, City of Kwinana, City of Mandurah, City of Nedlands, City of Swan, City of Wanneroo and Shire of Murray.

Please see 'Project stages and schedule' tab for a full list of streets to be renewed.

Why is this taking place?

The ageing mains require replacement as we believe they are likely to fail.

The replacement of these pipes will help secure the reliability of water supply to customers in these areas for decades to come.

When is this happening?

Preliminary work began in May 2020, with construction work starting on some streets at the end of June 2020.

How will this impact the community?

  • Construction work can be noisy and a little dusty. Some work will involve cutting into the ground which may cause vibration.
  • You may experience a temporary water supply interruption of around 30 minutes while the new pipe is connected to your property. We will notify you 48 hours prior to this occurring.
  • There may be temporary lane closures, road closures or detours. Please follow the detours that are in place and speak to a crew member onsite if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Our construction methods mean unavoidable impact to properties, roads, footpaths and verges, including reticulation. Water Corporation follows a thorough restoration process, visit the restoration FAQ tab for further information. 

We understand and appreciate that the work may cause temporary inconvenience and disruption, and we will do what we can to minimise impact and complete the work as quickly as possible.
