Water Corporation has been upgrading the 40 year old Yule supply main distribution system.
Ertech’s scope of works included installation, testing and commissioning of 12km of 700mm diameter MSCL piping (over four sections) supplied by Water Corporation.


  • This contract followed on from Ertech’s work on the 26km Yule Source Upgrade and the Yule Borefield Collector Main contracts completed in 2014.
  • There was a tight program in place for completion of the works. Ertech engaged with subcontractors from Water Corporation’s approved panel early to ensure all timeframes were met.
  • Ertech managed the challenging commissioning process by agreeing timeframes with Water Corporation for tie-in of each of the four sections.
