Gloucester River’s multimillion dollar water upgrade is set for one of the most important stages of the project, with drilling works soon to get underway and a contractor appointed for the installation of equipment for the new reservoir.

Contractors working for MidCoast Council will drill under the Gloucester River to connect the final section of the new rising main from the Gloucester Water Treatment Plant to the Cemetery Road reservoirs site.

Once finalised, the town’s water upgrade will be another step closer to completion, with the majority of work outside the Cemetery Road reservoirs site finished. Construction of the elevated steel reservoir is also around 90 per cent complete.

A new head contractor has been appointed to complete the remaining work at Cemetery Road, which includes construction of the seven million litre service reservoir and associated infrastructure.

Council’s Director of Infrastructure and Engineering Services, Rob Scott, said the project was on track to be finished by the end of 2023.

“We’re really looking forward to delivering this upgrade to Gloucester and we can’t wait for the community to experience a much improved level of service with their water,” Mr Scott said.
