Metropolitan Water Main Replacement Program

Metropolitan Water Main Replacement Program

What is the program?

We look after 27,000 kilometres of pipeline across Adelaide and throughout the state to deliver safe, clean water to South Australian households and businesses.

In the past 10 years we’ve replaced 638,000 metres and – in the four years until 2020 – we’ll be replacing 375,700 more.

Watch this video for an overview of what the program will achieve by 2020

Interactive Map

This map shows you our water main network, works undertaken, works planned to July 2018 and priority areas between now and 2020.

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, life expectancy of that pipe and the diameter (DN) of the pipe.

We will keep this updated in coming years as part of our efforts to deliver relevant information.

Our objectives

We want to reduce the impact of bursts and leaks on our community and deliver a reliable service to our customers.


What can I expect?

We are committed to keeping construction impacts to a minimum. As works progress you may experience the following:

  • Noise and dust from construction equipment Increased traffic in and around your local street
  • Restricted access to properties  Traffic and pedestrian management Temporary parking restrictions
  • Excavation work on roads and footpaths
  • Temporary interruption to your water supply.

We will make sure affected residents and businesses are aware of any works being planned.


Interruptions to customer water supply

Temporary interruptions to your water supply will be required at certain times.  This allows us 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.

You will receive advance notice from a member of the crew before any water disruptions.


Reinstatement

Road reinstatement occurs as soon as possible after the pipeline has been reconnected. The trench is backfilled at the conclusion of each work day. This ensures safety and minimises disruptions to traffic or property access.

Further information

  • You will receive a letter from the SA Water Stakeholder Engagement team before works begin.
