Mandamah Rural Water Supply Scheme

We are investing $10.9 million to deliver modern water supply services to about 100 rural properties near Barmedman.

Overview

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.

Timing

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.

Latest works

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.
