Upgrade for wa­ter main

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Gipp­s­land Wa­ter is up­grad­ing the main wa­ter sup­ply line for War­ragul to min­imise the im­pact on cus­tomers dur­ing dis­rup­tions.

In War­ragul more than 50 cus­tomers, mostly busi­nesses in the cen­tral busi­ness district, are con­nected to the main wa­ter sup­ply pipe rather than a retic­u­lated sys­tem.

GW act­ing op­er­a­tions man­ager Chris Wood said this meant there was no buf­fer for cus­tomers if there is an un­planned dis­rup­tion to the wa­ter main.

“The upgrade will im­prove the abil­ity to drain and re­fill the main thus re­duc­ing the time it takes to carry out re­pairs,” he said.

Dur­ing the works all in­ter­rup­tions to wa­ter sup­ply will be kept to a min­i­mum and cus­tomers will be no­ti­fied when wa­ter sup­ply may be im­pacted.

Gipp­s­land Wa­ter con­trac­tors will un­der­take some of the works at night in an ef­fort to min­imise the im­pact on busi­ness in the busy CBD.

The project is ex­pected to take 10 weeks and is de­pen­dent on a num­ber of fac­tors in­clud­ing the weather.
