Water Main Works in Wilmington

Water Pipe Orroroo.JPGSA Water has commenced works to replace 2000 metres of water mains under several roads in Wilmington as a part of works to reduce the impact of water main breaks on customers.

Water Mains under Davenport Road, Beautiful Valley Road and Gunyah Road will be replaced as a part of  SA Water’s $137 million investment to replace around 375,000 meters of water mains across the state between 2016 and 2020.

SA Water’s General Manager of Asset Operations and Delivery says the works will install new PVC pipes, which are flexible and more resistant to movement than cast iron and fibro-cement pipes.

The upgrade works are expected to take four months to complete and residents will be notified of any temporary water supply interruptions.
