Chiltern wa­ter leak still a work in progress

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE source of the wa­ter leak at Martins Lane con­tin­ues to be a chal­lenge, and dif­fi­cult to pin­point with­out costly and in­va­sive work. Fol­low­ing on from the ini­tial as­sess­ment and tri­als to fix the is­sue, we am cur­rently pro-gress­ing three po­ten­tial sources for the wa­ter is­sue in Martins Lane and Con­ness Street. These are; Fire ser­vice pipe line from North East Wa­ter main near pub to IGA su­per­mar­ket may be leak­ing. We are look­ing to carry out test­ing of this line for pos­si­ble leak­age. Ground­wa­ter from aquifer leak­ing to the stn-face; the wa­ter ta­ble may be high and trav­el­ling to the sur­face or into un­der­ground ser­vices. We will be look­ing to en­gage a con­sul­tant to carry out test­ing of aquifer and pro­vide re-port of ex­ist­ing con­di­tions and char­ac­ter­is­tics. This may re­quire in­stal­la­tion of in­ves­tiga-tion bores for mon­i­tor­ing. Old Chiltern wa­ter sup­ply pipe line may be leak­ing; the old Chiltern wa­ter sup­ply line was capped off by North East Wa­ter (NEW) how-ever is still charged and ser­vices a num­ber of prop­er­ties. We will be work­ing with NEW to ob­tain in­for­ma­tion on this old sys­tem to fur­ther de-ter­mine if it may be leak­ing. This may also re­quire test­ing of the line if it is in the vicin­ity of Martins Lane and Con-ness Street.
