Mount Gambier Bore Replacement

Mount Gambier Bore Replacement

What is the project?

SA Water will be constructing a new bore within our site on Wehl Street North, Mt Gambier. 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.

The construction of the new bore is scheduled to commence mid-August 2018.

Drilling works are anticipated to take three to four months to complete with the remainder of construction works anticipated to be completed by February 2019.

What can I expect?

Works will be undertaken Monday to Sunday, 7am-7pm.

SA Water and our contractors are committed to keeping construction impacts to a minimum. However, those nearest our works may experience some temporary noise throughout our works.

Where can I go for more information?
