Western Water is investing in innovative and long-term capital projects across our service area.
These include pioneering stormwater trials; piloting ground breaking technology; and the construction, maintenance and replacement of water, sewer and recycled water infrastructure, including pipelines, pump stations, treatment plants and storage facilities.
We’re doing this to ensure we are able to keep pace with the region’s growing population, comply with all government legislation and standards, and continually improve water, sewerage and recycled water services to our customers.
Often projects require us to manage environmental and cultural sensitivities, and some can involve traffic changes and brief service interruptions. For this reason, we actively engage with local communities in our service area to keep them informed of our project activities and progress.
