Project overview

A recent condition assessment of the water towers in Goorambat and Devenish found that both tanks are a safety risk. Planning is now underway to decommission the towers and to upgrade parts of each towns water supply infrastructure.

In Devenish, the upgrade will involve the bypassing of the existing water storage tank near the oval (the tower will remain in place) and the installation of a new water pipeline and pump station.

In Goorambat, the upgrade will involve the removal of the existing water storage tank, as well as construction of a new storage tank and pump station.

This work will provide greater reliability and more stable water quality for each town for decades to come.

What to expect during construction

Construction for both projects will be within North East Water's property, however nearby residents may notice:

  • Heavy vehicles – you may see heavy vehicles and construction related vehicles moving to the construction site and on local roads.
  • Noise – you may notice noise from construction activities during certain periods.
  • Dust – you may notice some dust during excavation at the site to lay new pipes.
