Project goal:

State-wide program to replace hydrants and valves to improve the security and reliability of water supply.

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

Ongoing

What's happening?

This work will replace ageing infrastructure to help prevent leaks and breaks and ensure our hydrants comply with current fire management standards.

  • Hydrant replacement
  • Valve replacement

How will this impact the community?

Most hydrants and valves are located in residential verges and residents will notice more vehicles and noise near their property if they live near a hydrant or valve. We do our best to minimise disruption and any disturbed driveways or verges will be restored to original condition once work is complete.

This work may require temporary interruptions to your water service.. If this is the case, we will be sure to notify you at least 48 hours prior.

We remind customers living in high bushfire risk areas that an independent water supply is necessary, should you choose to stay and actively defend your home. All efforts are made to maintain scheme water supply during a bushfire, however damaged infrastructure or a cut to power may result in a total loss of water. See Bushfires & water supply for more information.

We have been working with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) to ensure fire hydrants across the state are compliant with agreed design standards.

As part of this commitment, we are currently undertaking essential maintenance to upgrade the fire hydrants across WA.
