Improved Water Supply for Murray Bridge

Mark Gobbie

Murray Bridge will have improved water services in the coming months with the installation of a new water main.

Around 700 metres of the old pipes will be replaced with new PVC pipes along sections of Verdun Road and Edwards Street.

It is part of SA Water's $137 million investment to replace around 375,000 meters of water mains across the state between 2016 and 2020.

SA Water’s General Manager of Asset Operations and Delivery Mark Gobbie (pictured) said the installation of new PVC pipes, which are flexible and more resistant to movement than cast iron and fibro-cement pipes, has been eyed off as a priority project.

“With a lifespan of approximately 100 years for new water main pipes, this ensures the work being done will allow us to continue providing world class water services to our customers well into the future,” Mr Gobbie said.

The upgrade is expected to take around six weeks to complete, with most work occuring between Monday and Friday, 7am to 5pm.

SA Water will notify the community of any temporary water supply interruptions.
