There are many benefits of connecting to a reliable and secure rural piped water supply, such as:

  • Improved water quality that's not exposed to contaminants en-route or through surface runoff
  • Better quality water for bathing and washing than many dams
  • Usable life of home appliances, such as hot water services and washing machines, is generally extended due to reduced impurities in the water
  • Not having to rely on rainwater tanks or water carting
  • Access to stored water for fire-fighting
  • Clean and plentiful water for pets, chickens, horses and other birds and animals
  • Appreciation of property values
  • Drought proofed properties


Additionally for farms:

  • Improved effectiveness of herbicides and chemicals for crop spraying
  • Superior results have been achieved with stock in pipeline areas
  • Greater opportunity for diversification of farming operations and development of niche enterprises
  • Water available to all parts of the property, irrespective of dam locations
