Sydney Water and the Water Infrastructure Group were praised for their commitment to safety when presented with an award at the Australian Water Association National Water Awards in May 2012.
Sydney Water Managing Director Kevin Young said the Australian Water Association National Safety Excellence Award 2012 was proof of the organisation’s strong safety record while rehabilitating the Bondi Ocean Outfall Sewer, a key part of Sydney’s infrastructure.
The project was also the winner of the 2011 ASTT Rehabilitation Project of the Year award at No-Dig Down Under 2011, the ASTT’s 9th annual conference and exhibition.
“The $A6.9 million Bondi Ocean Outfall Sewer project involved restoring 911 m of a 120-year-old concrete and brick sewer,” said Mr Young.
“The rehabilitation saw crews working at night to install 611 m of PVC lining and applying 300 m of a calcium aluminate cement coating.”
