Neerabup Groundwater Scheme Expansion

back to current projects

Project goal:

Expand our deep groundwater network

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

2020

What's happening?

As part of our long-term plan to provide safe and secure water for the future, we are investing in a new expanded deep groundwater network.

We're doing this is by replenishing the deep Leederville and Perth Yarragadee aquifers with recycled water from our groundwater replenishment scheme and drilling new abstraction bores in Heathridge and Beldon, which will be connected by pipeline to the Neerabup Groundwater Treatment Plant in Perth's northern corridor  

To support abstraction from these additional bores, an upgrade of the Neerabup Groundwater Treatment Plant and Transfer Pump Station is also required.

The Neerabup Groundwater Treatment Plant currently treats some 100ML of groundwater a day for supply to our customers. The upgrade will increase treatment capacity to 150 ML/day.

To transfer water from the new abstraction sites to the Neerabup GWTP, new bore collector mains and connection to existing bore collector mains will also be required.

Water supply pipeline

We are installing lengths of pipeline in Joondalup and Currambine. In the lead up to these works we will be sharing information with members of the community and stakeholders that may notice the work.

Update to work - Mitchell Freeway road reserve (Burns Beach Road to near Nanika Crescent, Joondalup)

We have cleared this length of pipeline and will resume installation of the pipeline in early 2019. Upon completion the area will be reinstated.

Update to work - Currambine

We plan to start installing a length of pipe along the Mitchell Freeway road reserve to the rear of homes along Carlton Turn, Currambine on 29 January 2019. You can read more about this work here.
