Henley Brook replacement bore

back to current projects

Project goal:

To replace the existing water supply bore, which is no longer operational


Commencing soon

Delivery Date:

June 2018 - July 2018

What's happening

Last year we contacted local residents about our planned work to replace the existing water supply bore in Henley Brook, which is no longer operational.

This work was postponed and is now expected to commence in June 2018. This will involve drilling a new bore and Silver City Drilling has been authorised to complete this work.

The replacement bore will be installed within an existing Water Corporation site, which is located along Park Street in Henley Brook.

Community benefits

  • This bore produces around five million litres per day.
  • This work will ensure a reliable supply is maintained to customers in the area.
  • This work is vital to securing water supplies in a drying climate.  

Community impacts

Drilling of this replacement bore (first part of this work) is expected to take 4 weeks and the entire project is expected to be completed by the end of July 2018. The most noticeable noise impact from this work will occur during the drilling period. Noise control measures will be put in place as part of our management plan, including sound barriers, hay bales and noise monitoring equipment.

Some 24-hour work will be required when we pump test the replacement bore, producing low-level construction noise, however this impact will also be minimised through noise management.

Throughout this work there will be an increase in traffic in the vicinity of the construction area and project signage will be in place.


Working hours will be 7am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday, with some Sunday work required. Early evening work may also occur, however we will notify residents if this is required.
