Mains replacement begins at Colac

We will spend almost half a million dollars upgrading water mains in central Colac over the next two months.


Inspecting the work, L-R, Infratec's Jason Sherwood, Barwon Water Board Director David Harris, Infrastec's Tony Dyer and Barwon Water project manager Madan Dhungel.

The $480,000 project involves replacing 970 metres of water mains in Bromfield, Connor and Rae streets. Trenchless technology will be used to minimise disruption.

The existing 75 mm pipes were laid in 1925 and have reached the end of their operational life.

At double the diameter, the new 150 mm pipes will improve supply reliability.

Construction has started in Connor Street between Scott and Hart street.
