Standpipes and water carriers
Standpipes are portable hydrants designed to be connected to a fire hydrant in a water main to gain access to bulk water. All standpipes used in our area of operations must be metered and hired from us. There are currently three sizes of metered standpipes:
- 32mm high flow
Standpipes are used to fill water cart tankers from our water main infrastructure. It is our priority to inspect water cart tankers to confirm that they comply with backflow prevention requirements, to ensure the integrity of our drinking water supply. Water cart tanker inspections are required at the initial application stage and annually thereafter.
