Water mains pipes

Sydney Water has awarded the construction contract for its Kemps Creek Dual Pressure Mains project, which will support the delivery of its Upper South Creek Advanced Water Recycling Centre. 

Quickway Constructions Pty Ltd have been selected to deliver the project, which is designed to support the growth and development of Western Sydney.

The two 6.8km wastewater pipelines, expected to be completed in 2025, will be essential for the commissioning of the Upper South Creek (USC) Advanced Water Recycling Centre (AWRC) at Kemps Creek.

The AWRC is expected to go live in 2026, which will improve wastewater services and allow for development in Sydney’s South West Growth Area, improving the reliability and connection opportunities for homes and businesses in Austral, Leppington North, Rossmore, Kemps Creek, and parts of Leppington and Catherine Fields North.

Sydney Water Head of Major Projects, Emma Pryor, said the Kemps Creek Dual Pressure Mains and USC AWRC projects are significant infrastructure investments for Sydney Water in Western Sydney.

“We’re planning ahead to ensure we continue to provide reliable wastewater services for the forecasted growth of more than 400,000 people for the area,” Ms Pryor said.

“Building the USC AWRC is just one part of the puzzle. We also need pipelines, like the Kemps Creek Dual Pressure Mains, to collect wastewater from the surrounding region for recycling and reuse.

“The Kemps Creek Dual Pressure Mains will be the first of many pipelines to be constructed across Western Sydney that will transport wastewater to the USC AWRC for recycling and reuse for a number of non-drinking water purposes.

“The USC AWRC will use reverse osmosis – the same technology used by the desalination plant – to treat water to a high-quality and produce recycled water, renewable energy and bio-resources,” Ms Pryor said.

The USC AWRC is currently under construction and is expected to become operational in 2026.
