Community notice: Williamtown water reticulation scheme

Publish Date 07/06/2018

Hunter Water is providing a water reticulation scheme to approximately 350 properties within the Williamtown Management Area, as defined by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).

The scheme is funded by the Commonwealth Government and will provide access to safe drinking water for eligible properties.

The scheme includes the installation of over 14 km of new water mains in the Salt Ash area and Fullerton Cove area, as well as domestic plumbing works to directly connect individual homes and businesses to the reticulated water supply.

Properties that are being connected under the project include residences, businesses, a primary school, a commercial area, and community and tourism facilities.

For information on PFAS and Hunter Water see PFAS. For information about the drinking water supply see water quality.

Properties outside of the Management Area cannot be connected to the water supply as part of this funded project.

However, property owners outside the Management Area do have the option of funding their own connection to the water supply. The cost to the property owner will vary depending upon the proximity of the mains to a suitable water main and other factors.

The new water mains being installed as part of funded project will bring access to Hunter Water's supply closer to many properties.

If you are interested in connecting your property which is outside the Management Area, please call Hunter Water 1300 567 567.
