WaterNSW has awarded the contract to upgrade electrical assets at five metropolitan dams in the upper Nepean system.
Downer Group will carry out the upgrades which is the start of the wider project scheduled to finish by 2019.
The dams supply up to 30 per cent of Sydney’s drinking water and are vital in ensuring high-quality water is supplied to Sydney and the Illawarra. The upgrades are essential to ensuring that the dam’s electrical systems continue to meet contemporary safety standards.
“Sydney’s drinking water catchment is among the best in the world and WaterNSW is investing in infrastructure to ensure its dams continue to supply high-quality water, while allowing the public to enjoy the popular recreation areas.”
