Replacing your water mains

To deliver your trusted water service, we upgrade our water mains each year to maintain the reliability of your water network. By engaging in this smart investment, we ensure we will meet the demand for safe, clean drinking water now and into the future.

The choice of which water mains to upgrade each year is made by prioritising mains that are more likely to need attention. We consider history of previous failures, what customer interruption would be if the main were to break or if the main is currently causing a restriction.

Current status

This work is ongoing each year as we identify mains to upgrade to ensure the reliability of your water supply.

We aim to maintain drinking water supply to you throughout any water main replacement works and ensure we communicate with you about any potential disruptions to your water supply.

Opportunities for engagement

View our extensive water main network on our interactive map. You can zoom in or type in a street address, click on a main and find out more about when it was laid or when works are planned, as well as the life expectancy of the pipe.
