$38.9 million upgrades to water services in remote and town-based Aboriginal communities will be fast-tracked as part of the WA Recovery Plan. This ensures communities have access to safe and reliable water services.

The upgrades will see the Water Corporation become the licensed water service provider for the remote communities of Ardyaloon, Djarindjin, Lombadina and Beagle Bay on the Dampier Peninsula in the West Kimberley.

Planning and investigation will also commence for some other remote communities.

The Water Corporation will partner with Aboriginal communities on all aspects of the upgrade program, which will aim to create jobs for local Aboriginal people and businesses.
