In the coming months we are due to start construction on a new pump station in the town of Beverley. This work is the final stage of the Beverley water supply improvements project and once completed, we will then be able to connect our newly built infrastructure to the scheme.
This includes the town's new four million litre tank and 3.4 kilometres of water main to connect the new tank to Beverley's existing network.
At this stage we are scheduled to complete construction of the new Beverley pump station between October 2018 and May 2019 and the overall project is expected to take six months to complete. The pump station will be located in a fenced site near the corner of Great Southern Highway and Hutchinson Street.
During construction, surrounding residents should expect medium-level construction noise from assembling the pump station compound, concrete delivery to this site, construction trucks moving in and out of this area. Some crane work will also be required to lift the walls of the pumping station within this site.
Once the pump station is constructed, nearby residents should only experience low-level noise from the day-to-day operation of this infrastructure and we will have noise management in place before and after construction.
We appreciate the community’s understanding while this essential work is undertaken and apologise for any temporary inconvenience.
- Improve the reliability of supply to customers in the town of Beverley
- Increase the reserve water storage for the town
- Reduce the likelihood of breaks and leaks
- Increase water pressure to many customers.
Working hours for this project are likely to be 7am to 5pm and if any weekend work is required, we will provide notice regarding this.
