GWMWater has awarded a tender to Envirotech Water Solutions to upgrade the pump station at Lake Fyans. This will be the first stage of construction of the East Grampians Rural Water Supply Project.
Lake Fyans will be the main water source for the East Grampians pipeline, with smaller volumes of water being sourced from Mt William headworks or gravity fed from Mt Cole.
GWMWater has entered into an agreement with Vibe Energy to co-develop a Renewable Energy Facility at Nhill.
It is the organisation’s first venture into larger scale energy generation with direct connection into the local electricity grid and will offset 70% of GWMWater’s total electricity demand.
The facility, which includes a 2.75 MW (6 MWh) battery, will be located off the Western Highway, behind the Nhill Trailer Exchange, and generate 6.2 MW of solar energy. This is the equivalent of around 1,000 residential rooftop systems.
Construction will commence once planning approvals are finalised and the facility is expected to be operational by the end of 2024.

GWMWater completed maintenance works on Lake Bellfield outlet infrastructure in the week of 4 to 10 September, successfully utilising reverse-pumping on the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline whilst the lake was taken offline to undertake the work.
Lake Bellfield is the main supply source for the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline. Maintenance works were undertaken to inspect the internal outlet pipe and replace the bypass valve.
GWMWater has invited tenders for the construction of a new pump station at Lake Fyans, a key piece of infrastructure for the East Grampians Rural Water Supply Project.
