Reticulated water is available to the Boyup Brook Townsite via an extension to the Bridgetown water supply main. The source of this supply is Millstream Dam located near Balingup. Water from this dam is pumped to Hester, 10 kilometres north of Bridgetown, and gravity fed to storage tanks located at the western entrance to the townsite. Further storage tanks are located near Boyup Brook District High School. In addition, the town dam supplements the Bridgetown supply and is considered to have the potential to supply industry with a current capacity of 127,000,000 litres.
