Public impacts during construction

Sydney Water's contractor Comdain will establish a temporary compound at 44 Denman Ave Woolooware. This location will be used as a storage area for machinery, materials, pipes and fittings. 

The compound will be established on Wednesday 19 July and will remain in place until October 2017, weather permitting. 


Stage One: Water main renewal

This stage of work will not affect the water or waste water services.

Construction work will involve increased noise, dust and truck movements. To avoid any impacts we suggest that you try to keep windows and doors closed if your business or property is in close proximity to the work.

The roadway and disturbed areas will be temporarily restored each night to allow for continued use during the day. When all work is complete, Sydney Water will liaise with Council to permanently restore disturbed areas. 


Stage Two: Connections

The water supply will need to be interrupted to connect the new main and property Services. Night work will be required to complete this work. Affected residents will be notified by Sydney Water prior to this happening. 


Traffic and pedestrian management controls will be in place to ensure public safety.
Sydney Water will make every effort to minimise any impact this work may have on the community.
