Upgrade Bore Head and Pipework
Bore Head is located 800 metres down a cliff (across the airstrip) from the Homeland, with no vehicle access. The old piping system was under a poly-pipe system (subject to weather and more importantly fire damage), this has now been replaced with a galvanised piping system and a fabricated to specifications HDPE spring bore cover at the bore head site, to stop vermin, vegetation debreaffecting the quality of the water supplied.
This project allowed great training for our MES Jobs Converted Program Staff with our MES Co-ordinator leading the team. They work well together, keeping installation cost to the minimum. This was a difficult job under difficult circumstance (as the photos depict) – full credit goes to those who saw it through.
