WATER CORPORATION : IMPORTANT MESSAGE - BUSHFIRE SEASON
The 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.
- The Water Corporation will always do all that they can to maintain supply however fire damaged infrastructure or a cut to power can result in a total loss of water.
- If scheme water is available during a bushfire it is a bonus for property protection efforts, but it is not something that can be relied upon.
- People who plan to stay and defend their property during a bushfire need to have their own independent water supply and pumping capability, and must not rely on the public water supply.
- Full details about how to prepare for the bushfire season can be found on the DFES website.
