Lake Canobolas Water and Sewer Main, Orange, NSW


WORK TYPE: Construction Only

LOCATION: Nashdale Orange, NSW 2800

CLIENT: Orange Council

The purpose of the new water and sewer main is to remove the need of existing services and connect onto the existing Orange networks. The water main is a “renewal” project that will provide eligible residents and users of the lake, scout camp and other facilities with potable water of a higher quality. The existing water main is a 300mm Cast Iron main that is over 100 years old and is oversized to meet the needs of the Lake Canobolas area. Through the implementation of a sewer pumping station and rising main, the existing septic systems that are currently utilised will be removed from the catchment of the Lake Canobolas Reserve and Molong Creek and be pumped into the Orange sewer network, being treated further downstream at the Orange Waste Water Treatment Plant. The proposed route for the pipeline runs between Towac Park (south west of Orange) to Lake Canobolas across a variety of landscapes, ranging from the fringes of the urban residential area, to small rural holdings, horse stud/agistment properties, to larger orchards and mixed agricultural land, and then the ‘environmental management’ areas of the Lake Canobolas broader Reserve in the west.
