Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on


814. Hon JAMES HAYWARD to the minister representing the Minister for Water:

I refer to the upkeep of regional water and wastewater infrastructure in Albany and the great southern.

(1) How many water mains have burst or had water retention issues in the Albany local government area since the 2018–19 financial year? Please detail in tabular form the year, the locality, estimated amount of water released, total time taken to resolve, and the cost to Water Corporation.

(2) In relation to the recent acceleration of the Sleeman Avenue landslip in Miramar, has Water Corporation investigated whether or not the estimated 140 000 litres of water had an impact on the water slip?

(3) Would the minister please provide a breakdown of investments for maintenance of infrastructure in Albany for the financial years 2017–18 through to 2020–21?


I thank the member for the question. The level of detail that is required is quite extraordinary for a question without notice of which some notice is given. The Minister for Water has said the following.

Due to the level of detail required, it is not possible for me to provide an answer in the time available, and request the member place this question on notice.
