Apply to relocate a water hydrant

Water hydrants are access points to Council’s water mains. They are in place to allow Council, emergency services and authorised users to access our mains water supply.

Property owners, builders, or developers may require a water hydrant to be relocated due to works going on within the property.

Hydrants can be moved to a different location along the water main, however generally they cannot be raised or lowered.

Approved hydrant relocations are free of charge.
