Central Highlands Water (CHW) is investing $1.5million for several water improvement projects in the Daylesford and Hepburn region.
The projects aim to provide a reliable high quality water to local residents and businesses.
The initial scheme includes the installation of eight bulk water flow meters and an early detection system to CHW operations, which will help in reduce the time taken to locate any unreported burst water main activity.
The early detection system will also provide real time information which will assist with monitoring of water usage across the area.
The investment also includes an upgrade to pump infrastructure at Hepburn Reservoir, replacing the spillway at Bullarto Reservoir, investigating additional groundwater resources within the area, tagging fire services, and refurbishing the low level tank in Hill Street to monitor water usage.
The investment also includes provision for projects dedicated to improving assets such as the water network, monitoring and pressure management systems.
Central Highlands Water Managing Director, Paul O’Donohue, said, “We are investing in our monitoring systems, infrastructure and assets in the Daylesford and Hepburn region and working hard to ensure we continue to provide reliable, high quality water to our valued customers.”
