A $15 million upgrade of WaterNSW’s five metropolitan dams is set to take place, with works to electrical assets to make sites safer, more community friendly and meet contemporary standards.
Downer Group has won the tender to begin the next phase of upgrades on the Upper Nepean System, which includes replacing overhead wiring and putting it underground.
Significant work will be done on the Upper Nepean System and Woronora, with Avon Dam, Nepean Dam, Cordeaux Dam, Cataract Dam and Woronora Dam to be upgraded.
These upgrades represent a significant investment to ensure the five dams and recreational areas meet community and government expectations.
WaterNSW is committed to ensuring the dams meet the highest standards and this work is part of a three-year project to achieve that.
Construction is scheduled to begin late 2017, and is projected to be completed by March 2020.
