What’s happening?

We are currently constructing 10.7 kilometres of underground water supply main from Edward Road pump station to the Nanson Road tank to improve the water supply to the northern Geraldton region.

We are now about to start work to install two new parallel water supply mains underneath the Chapman River, as part of this project.

Power On Cabling have been authorised to complete this work on behalf of Water Corporation.

The water mains will be constructed via horizontal directional drilling. Trenches will be drilled underneath the river bed and two pipes will be pulled through from the northern side of the river. 

Two large pits will be excavated to facilitate the construction of the pipelines. One will be located at the end of Polo Road where it intersects Ridley Road and the other on the northern side of the river. Please view map attached.

Overall impact:

There will be with a lot of construction machinery moving around during this period, however the construction sites will be fully fenced.

There will also be an increase in traffic along Polo Road, due to construction vehicles travelling to and from this site.  Please take care when driving in this area. Also we would appreciate the public and equestrians to keep away from these areas, whilst the construction work is being carried out.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this period.


Working hours will be 7am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.
