Recycled Water Donated to SA Country Fire Service

The McConnell Dowell Diona joint venture (MDJV) are a major framework partner in the SA Water capital delivery program 2020-24. The team have been working on the Barossa Growth upgrade project in Reeves Plains where a recent community focused water reuse opportunity arose.

The team approached the South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS) at Two Wells about donating recycled water from a newly installed 2000m of trunk main on Gawler Road, Reeves Plains. APEX Vac Solutions helped the team transport the 120,000 litres of hydraulic tested water to the Two Wells CFS.

Two Wells CFS Captain Adam Harris shared the gratitude CFS had for the water reuse donation they received.

“The CFS is grateful for the team approaching us with a water reuse donation,” said Adam.

“We prefer where possible to use recycled water or rainwater for our training and this year’s winter has been a little dry so this donation will assist the team in training exercises in the lead up to summer.”

With four trunk main outputs to test in the area, we’ll continue to provide this recycled water to the CFS who contribute so much to our community.

We’re delighted to be working with SA Water, the nation’s second largest water recycler and contributing to a sustainable future.
