THE FOLOWING MESSAGE HAS BEEN ISSUED BY THE WATER CORPORATION IN REGARDS TO "BUSHFIRE PREPARDENESS"

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.http://www.dfes.wa.gov.au/alerts/Pages/default.aspx
