Programs of Work

Water Main replacements are being prioritised across the State.

The Capital Delivery Office is currently rolling out around $50 million in upgrade and renewals programs, just in this financial year within the existing TasWater Water and Sewer networks, addressing a backlog of legacy maintenance programs.

Significant programs include:

  • the replacement and upgrades of ageing water mains across the State, with a focus on proactively addressing the highest risk of asset failure, and service interuptions, and reducing leaks and loss from the system;
  • replacement of ageing or leaking sewer mains, prioritising infrastructure at risk of critical failure, causing overflows and potential environmental and property damage;
  • installation of new water metering infrastructure across the state, designed to assist in identifying low flows and water leaks, in addition to reducing the requirements for manual water meter reading and thus significant future labour costs.
