Water Corporation : IMPORTANT MESSAGE - Bushfire Season 2017/18

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.

  • We will always do all that we 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. (www.dfes.wa.gov.au/safetyinformation/fire/Pages/default.aspx)
