Hunter Water is providing a water reticulation scheme to over 300 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 watermains in the Salt Ash area, and 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 more information on PFAS and Hunter Water see PFAS. For information about the drinking water supply see water quality.
For more information please contact the Project Team by email or call 1300 657 657 during business hours. For after-hours emergencies call 1300 657 000.
Properties outside of the Management Area
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 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 there is a six step process. Please call Customer Contact on 1300 657 657.
