Every summer, as the weather becomes hotter and vegetation dries out, our region experiences a high fire danger period. Wannon Water prepares for the bushfire season by readying our people and our pipe networks to cope with extreme conditions. Our initiatives include:

Wannon Water works closely with the CFA in the event of a bushfire so that:

Wannon Water has crews on standby to make urgent repairs to water mains and hydrants. 

Wannon Water however cannot guarantee that water pressure or an uninterrupted water supply will be maintained during a bushfire.

Loss of electricity supply may cause our pumps, which transfer water, to fail. Extreme increased use of water by residents and the CFA during a bushfire may cause a reduction in water pressure throughout our pipe networks.
