The work will occur within our existing Water Corporation site, which is located along Park Street in Henley Brook. Please view the map attached which shows the location of our bore replacement site.

Working hours will be 7am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

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

Current impacts:

  • Local residents residing along Park Street should expect movement of excavators and trucks in and out of the Water Corporation site throughout the duration of this work.
  • The most noticeable noise impact from this work will occur during the excavation and compaction period, however this should not be as noticeable as the previous drilling work.
  • Customers may notice some additional traffic in the work area, however there will be no impacts on traffic associated with this work.
  • Overall, this construction work is not expected to generate a large amount of noise or disturbance to local residents. Please note there will be no impact on local water supply.
