Our water main replacement program helps us manage and maintain our water network.
Regular reviews and inspections help ensure network integrity. This also helps determine the right timeframes for pipe replacement.

SA Water and its contractors are committed to keeping construction impacts to a minimum. However you may experience the following;
Temporary interruptions to your water supply will be required at certain times to transfer all customer connections from the old main to the new main. These are usually scheduled during the middle of the day when demand for water is at its lowest. Overnight outages may occur in areas where day works are not practical, for example, when a school is located in a shut down area.
You will receive advance notice from a member of the crew prior to any water disruptions.
Road reinstatement occurs as soon as possible after the entire pipeline has been laid and reconnected. The excavated trench will be backfilled at the conclusion of each work day to ensure safety and minimise disruptions to traffic or property access outside of working hours.
