Key worksPipelines

The project involved laying of approximately 50km of distribution pipeline for two irrigation schemes; the Don Irrigation Scheme which draws water from the Forth River, and the Barrington Irrigation Scheme from Lake Barrington.

The pipeline was constructed with buttwelded 20m lengths of DN560 and smaller HDPE pipe.
The pipeline accessed 123 privately owned properties with 69 property outlets installed.

Installation of the pipeline encountered high production cropping farms, extreme wet weather, hard rock, and water, service and road crossings.

The project was completed in 14 months.
