Work Detail South Australian Government-owned SA Water is set to initiate the replacement work on 680m of water main in New Town to enhance water services. The project is part of SA Water’s A$137m ($93m) investment to replace around 375,000m of water mains. It is planned to be carried out across SA between 2016 and next year. It will replace pipes along Thomas Street, Rodda Crescent, George Street and Drain Road. SA Water acting chief executive Mark Gobbie said: “Our team is committed to proactively limiting the frequency and potential impact of any water main leak or break on our customers, and we’ve worked swiftly to bring this replacement forward ahead of schedule to minimise the potential for further interruptions to the area’s water supply. “The new pipes will be made of PVC, which are more flexible and resistant to underground movement compared to cast iron and fibro-cement pipes. “New water pipes traditionally have a lifespan of approximately 100 years, which ensures this main replacement will help us continue providing world-class water services to our customers in the New Town area well into the future.” Works under the project are expected to be completed in around six weeks. Mark further said: “For the safety of our people and residents in the area, we ask road users to please take note of any localised traffic management put in place while the works are completed.” Earlier this month, SA Water commenced the upgradation work on Pinnaroo Water Treatment Plant in the state’s Murray Mallee region. The company aims to increase the plant’s capacity.
