back to current projects

Project goal:

To improve the water supply to Kondinin and Hyden

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

May 2017–December 2018

What's happening

We will construct a new 2.5 million litre water tank, a new pump station, and 18.35 kms of new water main to improve the supply and quality of water to the towns of Kondinin and Hyden.

This work will involve construction of a new water main along the following roads:

  • 8.35 kms along Kulin-Lake Grace Road
  • 1.05 kms along Tarin Rock Road
  • 6.97 kms along Young Road
  • 1.98 kms along Sloan Road.

Community benefit

Customers in the towns of Kondinin and Hyden will benefit from

  • improved reliability of supply 
  • improved water quality.

Community impact

Current impacts: 

The new water main work will take place mostly within cleared farmland. In some areas, the pipeline will be installed within the road verge or the roadway itself. All directly affected customers will be contacted prior to work starting. Traffic management will be in place during the work to ensure the safety of road users and our workers. 

We appreciate the community’s understanding while this essential work is undertaken and apologise for any inconvenience.

Timing

This project started in May 2017 and is expected to be completed by December 2018. Work is expected to take place between the normal working hours of Monday to Friday, 7am–5pm, with some work being carried out on a Saturday where required.
