City West Water has over 4,000 kilometres of water mains and 32,250 hydrants in our service area.
These hydrants are primarily for fire fighting, however in certain circumstances they can be used by authorised persons to draw water for water catering.
In order to legally draw water from City West Water hydrants and fireplugs, you are required to have a valid permit.
Permits are issued on the condition that operators are adequately trained and that vehicles incorporate appropriate backflow prevention meaures.
All vehicles to be included in the permit must undergo and pass a backflow audit.
