We will be starting work soon to replace the existing water supply bore in Henley Brook. This will involve drilling a new bore to replace the current bore, which is no longer operational.
The replacement bore will be installed within an existing Water Corporation site, which is located along Park Street.
- This bore produces around 5 million litres per day.
- This work will ensure a reliable supply is maintained to customers in the area.
We have been working with local residents and have installed noise loggers on properties close to the replacement bore construction site. This will allow us to understand what noise management methods we will need to put in place during this work.
Drilling of this replacement bore (first part of this work) is expected to take 4–8weeks and the entire project is expected to take 5 months to complete. The most noticeable noise impact from this work will occur during the drilling period. Noise control measures will be put in place as part of our management plan.
Some 24-hour work will be required when we pump test the replacement bore, producing low-level construction noise, however this impact will also be minimised through noise management.
Work is expected to take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, with occasional Saturday work, also between 7am and 5pm.
As stated above, there will also be some 24-hour work required, however we will provide local residents with advanced notice before this work occurs.
If you have any questions regarding this work, please contact Elecia Wheat, Advisor - Community Engagement on firstname.lastname@example.org or call (08) 9420 3265.
