Cowangs To Bauloora Pipeline Replacement Project
The Cowangs Reservoirs to Bauloora Reservoirs Pipeline Replacement Project is a major construction project replacing pipeline that was initially installed in the 1930’s to supply water westwards from the Murrumbidgee River to Harden, Young, Cootamundra, Temora, Ardlethan and West Wyalong.
The $16 million project is supported by a $7.5 million grant funded under the Australian Government’s Water for the Future initiative through the Strengthening Basin Communities program.
Goldenfields Water County Council has engaged GHD Pty Ltd to undertake the design, investigations required for statutory and environmental approvals and construction management of the project.
Following a rigorous selection process, successful tenderer Leed Engineering and Construction Pty Ltd will install the replacement pipeline with on-site supervision being provided by GWCC.
The project will commence at the Cowangs Reservoirs with replacement of the inlet and outlet interconnection pipework and valves. The pipeline is approximately 29 kms in length comprising of 600, 450 and 375 mm diameter ductile iron cement lined (DICL) pipe plus the necessary valves to release air at the high points, isolate sections of pipeline and release scour waters at low point along the pipeline.
The pipeline will be installed close to the existing cleared areas and easements as possible and peripheral to Cootamundra to avoid streets with significant traffic.
The pipeline route (refer to Figure 1 - Site Location) has been finalised after consideration of technical, social, financial and environment factors.
