back to current projects

Project goal:

To provide a more reliable water supply to customers in the area


Commencing soon

Delivery Date:

Mid-November to Mid-December 2018

What's happening?

Water Corporation is replacing 150 metres of water supply main along the road reserve of Boulder Road, between Coventry Street and Roberts Street in Kalgoorlie. We will also be replacing 50 metres of water supply main along the road reserve of Roberts Street, near the corner of Boulder Road and Roberts Street.  Replacing these sections of main will improve the reliability of supply to customers in the area.  

Community impacts

Upcoming planned interruption to water supply to some customers along Boulder Road, Roberts Street, Shea Street, Coventry Street and East Street

As part of this work we are required to connect the replacement main to the existing service. To complete this work we will be required to temporarily interrupt customers' water supply over one final evening.

We apologise for this, as we have had difficulties completing this work, which is why we need to return to complete this final work. Please notify your tenant of this impact where applicable.  

During this work, you may experience a temporary water supply interruption of up to nine hours between the times below:

  • 9pm, Wednesday 5 December to 6am, Thursday 6 December, 2018

Please view this information for further details about this planned water supply interruption.

Special circumstances: If you have any special circumstances we need to be aware of before this essential work starts, please contact Elecia Wheat, Advisor – Community Engagement on (08) 9420 3265 or via email at Elecia.Wheat@watercorporation.com.au.

Overall impacts

We will install the pipe via trenchless technology to minimise any construction impacts, however some of this work will still require digging an open trench. This will be required to create entry and exit pits to install the new pipe underneath the road reserve/verge and if any new property connections are required. Minimal dust and noise is expected when we conduct open trenching and we will ensure these areas are fenced off to ensure public safety.

Traffic access and flow will be maintained throughout the duration of this work and traffic management will be in place as required. Project signage will also be in place.


This work is expected to start in mid-November and be completed by mid-December 2018. Working hours will be between 8am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Some work on Sundays may also be required, however this will be avoided where possible.
