Cameron Park Reservoir: Milestone Achieved

Securing the Future: Sustainable Water Solutions at Cameron Park Reservoir

ESG Alignment

The use of a state-of-the-art mobile fluid treatment plant highlights our dedication to sustainability by significantly reducing water use and waste during the drilling process. This innovative technology demonstrates our commitment to minimizing environmental impact and conserving natural resources.

Additionally, the protection of the habitat of the rare Black Eyed Susan plant reflects our commitment to biodiversity conservation and environmental stewardship.

The project positively impacts the community by addressing the need for reliable access to clean water, especially in the face of rapid population growth. By bolstering water infrastructure, the reservoir enhances the quality of life for residents, ensuring they have a fundamental resource for daily activities, health, and hygiene.

SDGs: 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities),  15 (Life on Land), 17 (Partnerships for the Goals)

Exciting news from our Cameron Park Reservoir Team as we’ve hit a significant project milestone last week! In partnership with Superior HDD and in collaboration with our client, Hunter Water, we successfully completed a 400-metre DN450 HDPE pipe horizontal directional drill, surpassing our performance targets.

What sets this achievement apart is its sustainable approach, especially the use of a state-of-the-art mobile fluid treatment plant. This technology recycles drilling fluid, drastically reducing water use and waste – a testament to our commitment to environmental sustainability.

As we progress, we’ve made necessary adjustments to the landscape to facilitate the construction of the primary water main, a crucial step in enhancing the water supply from Cameron Park Reservoir to the local community. Emphasising our dedication to environmental stewardship, we’re repurposing materials from these adjustments, providing them to the Rural Fire Service for use in training exercises. Furthermore, we’ve taken significant measures to minimise our environmental impact, including the protection of the habitat of the rare Black Eyed Susan plant (Tetratheca Juncea).

With 200m of the 1,400m DN560 HDPE trunk water main already in place, we’re looking forward to the next phase – installing pipework for the new 3.25ML reservoir.

Stay tuned for more updates as we work towards enhancing water accessibility for Cameron Park residents.
