Residents and businesses on the western side of the Warrego River now have a secure supply of potable water with the replacement of two deteriorated water main pipes.
River bed movement caused by weather and flood events exacerbated the condition of the existing 30-year-old cast iron pipes. The project removed the existing infrastructure and installed two PVC casings 3m below the river bed. Two continuous pipes were then inserted through the casings and reconnected to the water network.
The community now has a secure two-way supply of clean, uncontaminated potable water and essential fire-fighting capabilities for the area.
