Coast’s water supply network gets $61million boost
Monday, 4 February 2019
Central Coast Council is preparing to deliver one of the region’s most significant infrastructure projects – a nine kilometre water pipeline from Mardi to Warnervale.
The $61million project will boost water supply to the Central Coast’s rapidly growing northern suburbs and improve water security for the entire region.
Council Director Water and Sewer, Bileen Nel said the Mardi to Warnervale Pipeline project is the next major step to enhance the Central Coast’s water supply network.
“The pipeline will run from the existing Mardi Water Treatment Plant through to Sparks Road at Warnervale, which will provide water supply to Warnervale Town Centre and the rapidly expanding northern growth corridor,” Ms Nel said.
“The project will enhance the water transfer capability between Central Coast Council and Hunter Water, which further improves water security for the two regions.
“Extensive investigations and planning have been undertaken to ensure we deliver a vital piece of infrastructure whilst also protecting the environment.
“A range of innovative techniques will be used to deliver the pipeline including the use of trenchless methods.”
Mayor Jane Smith said Council’s investment in the Mardi to Warnervale Pipeline would deliver multifaceted benefits.
“This project will ensure we can service our growing northern suburbs and increase water security for our entire region,” Mayor Smith said.
The design phase of the project has been completed and construction is expected to commence in 2020.
