Prospect South to Macarthur (ProMac)

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Under the ProMac project we are building new drinking water pipelines and infrastructure between Prospect South and Macarthur as part of Sydney Water's long-term plan to extend the city’s water capacity and supply.

ProMac will upgrade our existing water reservoirs at Liverpool, Cecil Park and Currans Hill as well as build two new reservoirs at Oran Park. This will allow for an extra 100 Megalitres of additional reservoir capacity in Western Sydney. That’s the equivalent of about 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

We’re also building 15 km of additional pipework, three pumping stations and upgrading our existing network to ensure growing communities in South Western Sydney have access to clean drinking water.

Sydney Water is investing in new infrastructure that will support the growing, dynamic South Western Sydney.

ProMac will help Sydney Water deliver on its vision of creating a better life with world-class water services.

  • First early works connection completed for Mount Annan to Sugarloaf water main

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    On Saturday 30 October, the first connection was made between the newly completed pipeline in William Howe Regional Park, and the existing network which feeds into the Narellan South Reservoir in Mount Annan. There will be multiple points of connection following this event, with the next to occur in just over two weeks time.

    To complete the connection, Sydney Water shutdown the reservoir for 24 hours from 7 am on Saturday. This involved closing the valves and flushing water from the existing main. The connection was made without affecting the water supply for Sydney Water customers. It took one hour for the existing capped end to be sawed open, with an additional 4 hours spent welding a new flanged rim to the existing end. The final fitting of the new pipeline was then lifted into position and bolted to the existing main.

    The ProMac team has kept the Mount Annan community up to date with the progress of works in William Howe Regional Park. Prior to the connection works commencing, the 12 properties within 100 metres of the works were doorknocked so the team could explain the proposed activities and answer any questions.

    This area of pipeline is just one of 18 packages of work within the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) program. To date, our contractor Vaughan Civil has installed around 50 percent of the 4,379m pipeline in Menangle Park, William Howe Regional Park and Australian Botanic Garden in Mount Annan.

  • Cecil Park 30ML Reservoir refurbishment delivered on time

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) Program, we recently completed the refurbishment of the existing 30 megalitre reservoir at Cecil Park. The timing of these works was planned in 2020 to coincide with lower water demands by our customers during a late autumn / winter / early spring shutdown.

    These works were delivered on time and are now ready for the peak summer demand period. The scope of works included structural upgrades to the reservoir roof and replacement of the existing internal bitumen lining with a durable epoxy paint. Roof repairs encompassed a 50% replacement of sheeting and steel repairs to beams. Other additions include new hatches, ventilation and divers’ ladders.

    Cecil Park Reservoir is connected to the new water trunk main currently being installed from Liverpool reservoir to Kemps Creek and will meet the increased demands from growth in South West Sydney and the new Aerotropolis.
