We constructed a new water main along Rees Road between Hume Avenue and Toolern Waters Drive that will provide quality drinking water to the growing Melton South community.
Town(s): Melton South,
Cost: $1 million
Expected Completion Date: Completed
Why was this project needed?
Melton South is growing rapidly and this extension ensures that quality drinking water is available to residents at Toolern Waters and Waterford estates. It also provides a connection point for future water infrastructure, to meet demand for water services.
What did the work involve?
We extended a 600mm diameter water main along the north side of Rees Road, starting at Hume Avenue, crossing Mapleton Boulevard, the service road entry and exit, and stopping near Toolern Waters Drive. The water main was installed in the nature strip using open trenching − when a trench is dug to lay the water pipe.
