    To support planned and reactive maintenance, Sydney Water uses a range of P&E with operator(s) on a temporary hire basis. The hire of P&E with trained and qualified operator(s) is known as “Wet Hire”. Examples of this include an excavator, truck or loader with operator(s).
     P&E Wet Hire Services are used for emergency call outs or pre-planned work activities.  As such, P&E Wet Hire services are used by Sydney Water at any time, 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours per day.
    It is envisaged that a single P&E Wet Hire service provider will manage & coordinate provision of all labour, materials, equipment (including safety equipment) necessary to perform Wet Hire Services across the entire Sydney Water area of operations.
