AU – New Watermain to Supply Water to Warrnambool

Wannon Water will lay more than two kilometres of water pipes through horizontal directional drilling for the 1,600 new houses located in a new subdivision in Victoria’s Warrnambool City. 

Construction of the $A1-M water feeder main recently commenced, which will supply water to the new subdivision in Wollaston Road, just north of Merri River.  

Wherever possible, local contractor Cri-tec Plumbing will use horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to lay pipes underneath road crossings to build the new water feeder main.  The HDD method will also be used to bore beneath Russell’s Creek to protect the environment.  

Expected completion of the project is on April 2014.
