Mandamah Rural Water Supply Scheme
We are investing $10.9 million to deliver modern water supply services to about 100 rural properties near Barmedman.
The Mandamah Rural Water Supply Scheme will expand the region’s water supply network by 180 kilometres to provide essential water services to farmers and residents across more than 90,000 hectares in the Mandamah region west of Barmedman.
Construction of the Mandamah Rural Water Supply Scheme started in November 2017.
The scheme will be delivered in four stages and is expected to take around five years to complete.
Construction work on two new reservoirs off the Wargin Trig Access Road started on 13 June 2018. Each reservoir will have the capability to store half a million litres of water. Construction work on the new reservoirs is expected to take about six to nine months to complete.
In late August 2018 the first of four wall concrete pours was conducted. Each pour will be approximately 2m in height and contain 20m3 of concrete in each.
The Mandamah Rural Water Supply Scheme project is on schedule and set for completion by end of financial year 2022/23.

Property owners will be responsible for organising the connection of their property to the water meter installed by Goldenfields Water.
Property owners will receive more information before the first round of connections become available.
