Hunter Water has announced that water supply to Cameron Park and Fletcher will be doubled with a new project in the area. 

In addition to bolstering water supply capabilities by increasing supply from Black Hill 1 Reservoir, Hunter Water said that the Black Hill Trunkmain Duplication Project will also ensure a more reliable and efficient water service for the community. 

Hunter Water’s Group Manager Asset Solutions, Justin Watts, said that the upgrades will help to ensure the infrastructure continues to operate safely and reliably, as well as catering for population growth. 

“The Black Hill Trunkmain Duplication Project marks a significant milestone in our commitment to ensuring a resilient and sustainable water supply for the communities we serve.  

“These improvements will accommodate future growth in the Cameron Park area and fortify water reliability in Maryland, Fletcher, and Minmi by providing a new pipeline linked with our bulk water supply network. 

“By duplicating the existing infrastructure, we are not only preparing for future growth but also strengthening our ability to deliver reliable water services,” Mr Watts said. 

The duplicate pipeline was constructed from John Renshaw Drive to Black Hill, all within the confines of the existing pipeline corridor,  increasing supply from the Black Hill 1 Reservoir. 

“In order to complete this work, our Hunter Water crews completed trenching and under-boring along the new pipeline route. All while working closely with the local community to minimise impacts from the construction. 

“These upgrades are a crucial component of Hunter Water’s overarching program aimed at the replacement and enhancement of water and wastewater-related assets throughout our area of operations,” Mr Watts said.
