Cecil Park - reservoir upgrade works continue
As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) project we are upgrading the existing reservoir at Cecil Park.
Currently, the existing reservoir at Cecil Park is offline while our Contractor, Freyssinet Australia, works to upgrade the reservoir. The reservoir can only be offline in the winter months when demand for water is lower. To meet critical program milestones and ensure the reservoir is operational in time for summer we need to continue our works.
Most of our other construction activity within Western Sydney Parklands at Cecil Park associated with the ProMac project will pause until we resume work on Saturday 31 July 2021, pending NSW Health Advice.
We will have a total of 15 workers attending this site each day. Our workers will travel directly from home to site and back each day and will have no interaction with the local community. Our workers will access the site from Elizabeth Drive, Cecil Park.
The health and wellbeing of Sydney Water crews are our top priority, including employees and contractors who work in the identified LGAs of Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown, and Liverpool. While urgent works continue, all crews are adhering to testing, social distancing, and mask requirements.
Sydney Water has a comprehensive process in place to ensure we are only conducting urgent works during this time - works that may cause harm to the community and environment if they are not carried out.
Members of the public can rest easy knowing that Sydney Water's front line crews are authorised to work safely to continue delivering these essential services for their communities.
