COVID 19 Update

During the heightened national response to Covid-19, our top priority is providing clean drinking water and safe wastewater treatment to our communities, which has meant prioritising essential project work. Read more here.

We are currently completing essential work for the pipelines project, and will then ensure the site itself, and traffic management across the site are left safe for the public. While the site is closed during the lockdown period, we will carry-out ongoing site inspections. We will update communities when this project is set to recommence.

We will be continuing with the procurement work for the reservoir itself and still expect the construction of this to start later this year.
