Mount Gambier Bore Replacement

Mount Gambier Bore Replacement

What is the project?

Works to construct a new bore within our site on Lake Terrace East, Mt Gambier will start shortly. The project also includes works to remove the existing bore.

The existing bore is nearing the end of its asset life and replacing it will ensure the ongoing security of backup supply for our customers.

What can I expect?

Drilling will start late August 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by October.

Initial drilling will mostly be undertaken Monday-Sunday, 7am-6pm.

The removal of the existing bore is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

Those nearest our works may experience some temporary construction noise and vibration throughout construction. Some vegetation removal within our site may be required to accommodate the required drilling rig equipment.

Where can I go for more information?
