Dungowan pipeline early works commence

16 February 2022

A once in a generation project to improve water security for the communities of Tamworth and Peel Valley is underway with the first sod being turned on the new Dungowan pipeline.

The project will update the 70 year old pipeline with 55 kilometres of new pipeline to eventually connect the new Dungowan dam to Tamworth’s Calala water treatment plant.

The Dungowan pipeline is expected to take up to 18 months to complete.

Meanwhile the business case for stage 2 – the construction of the new Dungowan dam – is with Infrastructure NSW and Infrastructure Australia for their review. It is also expected to go before the NSW Government within the month.

The Environmental Impact Statement for the Dungowan dam proposal is scheduled to go on display before the end of the year.
