Old infastructure finds new purpose

Investigative works on an abandoned water main have been hailed a success.

Investigative works on an abandoned water main have been hailed a success.
According to Westernport Water’s project manager Mr. Keith Gregory, “The investigation confirmed our assumptions that the old water main would be suitable to use as a sleeve to house the new purple pipe which will deliver class A water into the Cowes CBD.”
The planned investigative works between Wimbledon Heights and Cowes Rhyll / Ventnor Road roundabout have been completed and we can confirm that the old water main is a suitable piece of underground infrastructure to carry the new Class A water pipeline.
According to Westernport Water’s Managing Director, Murray Jackson “This is a creative way to make use of an abandoned water main and at the same time save the project, on excavation and construction costs.
Using this old infrastructure will also save the community traffic disruptions related to further construction.”
The Phillip Island Recycled Water Scheme is progressing according to plan, project manager Keith Gregory is confident that Class A water will be available in many pockets between Wimbledon Heights and Cowes on Phillip Island by the end of 2012.
