Scheme Water Cannot be Guaranteed during a Bushfire

Published on Friday, 29 November 2019 at 9:18:00 AM

Water Corporation is prepared for bushfire season. However, we cannot guarantee that water pressure or water supply will be maintained in the event of a bushfire. Extreme demand, fire damage and power cuts can all result in a total loss of water.

If you plan to stay and defend your property during a bushfire, you must have your own independent water supply and pumping capability, and must not rely on scheme water.
