New South Wales Water Minister Kevin Anderson announced that the state would co-fund the project.

A $13.2 million water infrastructure project will deliver improved services to West Wyalong, New South Wales, strengthening the system’s pressure and reliability.

The West Wyalong Water Reliability Project will improve water flow and water pressure in West Wyalong through the installation of new infrastructure including a reservoir tank, 8km of main water supply pipeline, a 7km water distribution main, and a transfer pump station.

A new transfer pump station will be built on the western side of town that will transport up to 80L of water per second from the reservoir into a new 2.4ML water tower.

The water tower will be 11.3m in diameter and will increase water pressure due to its 24m height, delivering water to households and businesses via a new 7km reticulation pipeline.

Federal Minister for the Environment and Water, Tanya Plibersek, said the project evidenced the government’s commitment to better managing regional services.

“The Australian Government is committed to improving water security for all Australians, particularly for those in our regions, while being economically responsible and still protecting the environment and our cultural heritage,” Ms Plibersek said.

“This project is key to unlocking the economic potential of the region by supporting the expansion of agribusiness, the mining industry, and through opening up opportunities for new investment across the Bland Shire region.”

The West Wyalong Water Reliability Project is a joint initiative with the Australian Government through the National Water Grid Fund Connections Pathway contributing $4.5 million, the New South Wale Government’s Resources for Regions Fund investing $2.65 million, Bland Shire Council providing $800,000 and Goldenfields Water committing $5.25 million.

New South Wales’ Minister for Water, Kevin Anderson, said the State Government supported the project and its goal of supporting regional water security.

“Co-funding this project shows our commitment to supporting water security at every level of the supply system,” Mr Anderson said.

“That’s why I am pleased to see boots on the ground and work getting underway on this critical water reliability project that will make West Wyalong a better place to work and live.”

Construction works for the West Wyalong Water Reliability Project are expected to be completed before the end of 2023.
