Residents and businesses on the western side of the Warrego River will have a secure supply of potable water when two deteriorated water main pipes are replaced.
River bed movement caused by recent weather and flood events has exacerbated the condition of these 30-year-old cast iron pipes. The project will remove the existing infrastructure and install two PVC casings 3m below the river bed. Two continuous pipes will then be inserted through the casings and reconnected to the existing water network.
When complete, the community will have a secure two-way supply of clean, uncontaminated potable water, and maintain essential fire-fighting capabilities for the area.
