The Mansfield Delatite Weir and Pipeline Upgrade was conducted in an active water way on a site of aboriginal cultural heritage. A cofferdam was erected and then diversion pipes installed to divert the water around the area of works. The area of works was dewatered to enable the removal of existing asbestos pipes. A new pipeline was then laid to complement existing mains supply. After pipeline installation, the height of the weir was raised by forming and pouring mass concrete. All contaminated material was removed and the site reinstated. Environmental Management plan was strictly adhered to ensuring zero harm to flora and fauna.
