An important message from Water Corporation in preparation for this coming bushfire season.
Published 18 October 2023
Water Corporation is prepared for bushfire season.
However, 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. You cannot rely on mains water.
