Power and Water’s program of planned maintenance and upgrade works is an essential part of delivering safe and reliable power, water and sewerage services to Territorians.

We’re responsible for electricity transmission and distribution and water and sewerage services across the Northern Territory, an area of more than 1.3 million square kilometres.

The environmental challenges we face in maintaining the network include cyclones, severe storms and damage from trees and wildlife. Our maintenance and upgrade program includes tree trimming, electricity supply upgrades and sewer and water works.

During scheduled maintenance, you may experience disrupted power and water services or reduced access to roads and buildings. These planned interruptions are significantly shorter and less disruptive than an unexpected fault.

We also provide plenty of advanced notice so everyone can prepare.

Your safety, and the safety of our contractors and employees, is incredibly important to us. Motorists and pedestrians are advised to follow warning signs around affected areas.

Planned works notices are published in the NT News and also mentioned on the local radio.
