back to current projects

Project goal:

Improve the reliability of water supply to Wagin and Katanning and provide adequate water storage for Wagin.

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

June 2019

What's happening?

We're improving the reliability of water supply to the towns of Wagin and Katanning through the construction of 11.2 kms of new water pipeline and an upgrade to the Wardelocking Reservoir in Wagin.

The new water supply pipeline will increase transfer capacity along the Narrogin-Katanning pipeline to cater for future growth in Katanning and provide an increase in water storage capacity at Wagin.

Where is this happening?

Why is this work taking place?

This work will improve the reliability of the water supply to the towns of Katanning and Wagin, as well as provide additional water storage for Wagin.

The upgrade to the Wardelocking Reservoir will see the addition of a roof, liner and chlorine dosing system to the reservoir’s outlet. The upgrade  will increase the tank’s water storage capacity to 3.6 million litres, providing additional water supply for customers in Wagin and catering for future growth in the area.

When is this happening?

Work is expected to be completed in June 2019.

How will this impact the community?

As work has now progressed to the Wardelocking Reservoir upgrade, there will be minimal impact to the community.
