Changes to Water Corporation asset protection documentation
The Water Corporation advises that a number of important enhancements have been made to asset protection documentation.
The changes address safety issues for working on or near assets and clarify a number of ambiguities in the previous documentation.
Impacted documents and key changes include:
Technical Guidelines for working near Water Corporation Assets
Inclusion of a requirement for serious consideration of shoring and depressurisation/cutting and capping in open excavations alongside live pressure mains.
Asset Protection Risk Assessment form (APRA)
APRA template is now fillable online and a new annex clearly setting out safety hazards and responsibilities has been added to all APRA applications.
The updated documents came into effect on 1 July 2019 and are available on the Water Corporation website. Enquiries regarding the changes or documentation in general should be directed to the Water Corporation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
