Water supply doubled for Cameron Park and Fletcher

Hunter Water has installed a three-kilometre water trunk main in Black Hill Reservoir to ensure a more reliable and efficient water service for the community.

The upgrades will bolster water supply capabilities as well as help to ensure the infrastructure continues to operate safely and reliably, as well as catering for population growth.

A new pipeline linked with the bulk water supply network will accommodate future growth in the Cameron Park area and fortify water reliability in Maryland, Fletcher, and Minmi.

Hunter Water Group Manager Asset Solutions, Justin Watts, says “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. ”

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

Hunter Water crews completed trenching and under-boring along the new pipeline route, while working closely with the local community to minimise constructions impact.

These upgrades are part of an extensive program of works to improve assets across the region.
