Media Release – 24 May 2023 – Upcoming Active Leak Detection

May 30, 2023

Contractors for the Department of Planning and Environment will be conducting active leak detection across the Hilltops from next Monday 29 May, until early July 2023, as part of the Regional Network Leakage Detection Program.  

Phase 2 of the Regional Network Leakage Detection Project is part of the NSW Government’s $12.5 million Regional Leakage Reduction Program which has already seen more 2,700 kilometres of water mains surveyed and more than 930 leaks found, saving Councils over billions of litres of lost water this year alone. 

Water Intelligence Australia (WIA) will be conducting the detection testing. WIA Technicians will be testing water mains throughout the Hilltops and may need to access water meters. WIA Technicians will be in uniform and have identification.
