Project goal:

To construct a new water pipeline in Orelia to improve the reliability of water supply within the Medina High Level Distribution Zone


In construction

Delivery Date:

Mid-late 2022

What is happening?

 In order to secure the water supply in Orelia and the wider City of Kwinana we are planning to install:

  • A surge vessel tank to protect the network in case of pressure surge
  • Approximately 500 meters of underground water pipeline 

Where is this happening?

The proposed underground pipeline will be constructed along Portchester Avenue, Stokesay Street and connected to an existing pipeline along Clarinda Avenue. The new surge vessel tank will be built at our site near Portchester Avenue.

Please view the Orelia project map for the full scope of work.

When is this taking place?

Most of the work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am & 7pm, if night work or weekend work is required we will provide notice to nearby residents.

How will this impact the community?

Traffic management will be in place when lane closures are necessary. Please follow the directions.

Construction work means you can expect some noise, dust, vibration and traffic impacts. Our contractor will minimise these impacts as much as possible. 

Construction will involve road cutting, excavating and compacting. These activities are most noticeable at the start and finish of our work when we cut the road and excavate, and then when we backfill and compact to reinstate the road. 

Once the new pipes are in the ground, the impacted areas will be backfilled, compacted and reinstated progressively to minimise disruption and dust. 

Please be assured that any affected areas will be restored to as close as possible to their initial condition. We are working with our environmental team and the City of Kwinana to reinstate the vegetation impacted by our work.
