Sydney Water is investing more than $1 million in renewing water mains across the Fairfield and Holroyd areas to ensure the reliability of the local water supply.
Work will take place on Gardiner Crescent, Fairfield West; Malabar Street, Canley Vale; Kirrang Avenue, Villawood; The Promenade, Broughton Street and Church Street, Old Guildford; and Queen Street, Albert Street and Woodpark Road in Guildford. It is expected to be finished in October.
Sydney Water Managing Director Kevin Young said the work was an essential part of delivering a safe and consistent water supply to hundreds of homes.
“Sydney Water owns and operates a 21,000 kilometre pipe network, which delivers water to more than four million people across the Sydney, Illawarra and the Blue Mountains” Mr Young said.
“This type of work improves the performance of the water supply system and helps to reduce the amount of water lost each year through leaks and breaks.
He said the investment is part of a broader $104.9 million spend across Sydney Water’s water distribution systems in 2012-13.
“During the work Sydney Water will work closely with local Councils, the RMS, local residents and businesses to minimise construction impacts,”
The renewal work will be done by Sydney Water’s alliance partners NetWorks Alliance, comprising of Sydney Water, Lend Lease, CLM Infrastructure and Veolia Water Network Services.
