Alice Water Smart Reticulation

Power and Water Corporation, which manages the Alice Water Smart Reticulation project is working to identify leaks in over 300 kms of  the Alice Springs pipe network.

The natural environment in Alice Springsis extremely stressful for water pipe material due to the varying topography, salinity and temperatures, resulting in a high number of water main breaks and water losses.

Alice Water Smart aims to delay the significant investment required to establish a new bore field. Two key initiatives include:

  • Water reuse and upgrades to the existing reuse infrastructure
  • Water pressure management and leak reduction throughout the Alice Springs water reticulation system
