Water Mains Replacement Program continues

The water mains replacement program continues into the financial year 2022/23, with works set to improve the water supply system in towns across the Shire.

“Over the next twelve months the mains replacement program will continue across all towns within the Shire with Namoi Street, Baradine being the first of many projects for this financial year,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “This section of water main replacement forms part of the Warrumbungle Water’s capital works program.”

“Council has once again committed a substantial budget of $850,000 for this year to continue to address the water supply issues caused by the ageing pipes throughout the reticulation systems in all towns across the Shire,” said Cr Doolan.

The Namoi Street Project is a continuation of last year’s mains replacement which will see the remaining 250m of mains pipeline in the northern section replaced, weather permitting. This project is expected to finish in November 2022. 

“Replacements will include, and will target, areas prone to main breaks as well as any old cast iron pipes that will be replaced with PVC pipes. This will improve water supply and mains durability for communities across the Shire,” Cr Doolan explained.  

Community members that may experience supply interruptions throughout these works will be notified via door knock, either on the morning of the works or on the previous day prior to works commencing.

“Council thanks the residents of Warrumbungle Shire for their patience and cooperation during these works,” Cr Doolan concluded. 

For any further information residents can contact Council’s Warrumbungle Water department on (02) 6378 5000.
