Metropolitan residential

Project goal:

To renew around 22 kilometers of ageing water mains across 9 Local Government Authorities.

Delivery date:

July 2019

What's happening?

In March 2019 we began work to renew around 22 kilometres of ageing water mains across numerous streets in the Perth metro area.

Work will take place in a staged approach across 9 Local Government Authorities. All customers to be impacted will receive prior notification detailing when work will be taking place along their street.

This work will help secure the reliability of water supply to customers in these areas for decades to come.

Where is this happening?

Replacement of the ageing water mains will take place across the City of Stirling, City of Bayswater, City of Swan, City of South Perth, City of Nedlands, City of Belmont, City of Joondalup, City of Melville and City of Gosnells.

Please see 'Project stages and schedule' tab for a full list of streets to be renewed.

Why is this taking place?

The ageing mains require replacement as we believe they are likely to fail.

The replacement of these pipes will help secure the reliability of water supply to customers in these areas for decades to come.

When is this happening?

The full project will run between March and July 2019. For the start dates and duration of impact for each street, please see the 'Project stages and schedule' tab.

How will this impact the community?

Construction fencing will be erected along your street, driveways may be restricted at times, traffic management and detours will be in place, the area will experience an increase in noise and traffic.
