WaterNSW has awarded a contract for stage two of the Fish River Water Supply Replacement Pipeline project.
TCM Civil won the contract and will begin work on stage two in March 2017. Stage two will see a 3km section of the 54km Fish River pipeline between Oberon and Wallerawang replaced with a new pipeline.
Stage one has been underway since January 2016 and has involved the planning and designing of the replacement pipeline.
WaterNSW Project Manager, Janaka Weerarante, said the pipeline replacement is part of WaterNSW’s ongoing strategy to ensure its assets remain efficient and reliable.
“WaterNSW regularly carries out assessments and upgrades of pipelines and other assets to ensure efficiency and reliability,” Mr Weerarante said.
“This work is being undertaken as part of our ongoing works program to ensure that all of our infrastructure conforms to contemporary design standards, is structurally sound, well maintained and continues to meet customers’ needs well into the future.”
