Necessary Water Main Renewal Program works in Braddon

March 31, 2017

Icon Water has contracted Interflow Pty Ltd to conduct necessary works as part of the Water Main Renewal Program. The renewal is of 1,035 metres of pipes that were installed in 1936 to new, better-quality pipes on Torrens Street, Wise Street, Henty Street and Helemon Street in Braddon.

The new pipes that will be installed are expected to provide water to the community for the next 100 years. The works will benefit the community by improving water quality, pressure and reduce incidents of pipe bursts.

Site preparation for the works is due to begin on Monday, 3 April 2017. This project is expected to take up to ten weeks to complete, depending on the weather during the construction period.

The program in Braddon includes excavation of trenches and pits in the road, footpath and nature strip and laying the majority of new pipes by open cut trenching technique. Adjacent streets to Torrens Street, Wise Street, Henty Street and Helemon Street may be impacted with construction activities. 

We would like to remind members of the community to be aware of traffic management plans that will be put in place to ensure the work is carried out safely. Project activities may cause traffic disruptions, reduced access and parking in the area.

The project is designed to ensure minimal disruption to water supply for residents and businesses in the area. Over the next ten weeks Icon Water will provide regular updates to the community about the progress of the project via iconwater.com.au/WaterMainRenewal and twitter.com/iconwater.

Due to the complexity of these works, short periods of water discolouration may occur.  It is recommended that water will clear with normal use, and to avoid using appliances such as the washing machines or dishwashers to avoid potentially staining or discolouring clothes and utensils.

For enquiries regarding the project please contact the contractor Interflow on 0413 754 024. For all other enquiries contact Icon Water directly on 02 6248 3111 and select option 3 or email talktous@iconwater.com.au.

Icon Water would like to apologise to our customers in Braddon for any short term inconvenience this important work may cause to ensure we can provide our community award winning water.
