Project Details

South Australia Water is in the process of upgrading all major valves and fire plugs (underground hydrants) along the Warren Trunk Water Main.

The 32.5km Warren Trunk Water Main supplies water from the Swan Reach Water Treatment Plant to approximately 15,000 customers through the Barossa Region to Williamstown.

Products of choice for this upgrade were Densopol 60 Tape with Denso PVC Self-Adhesive Tape as per SA Water TS 81 for the main pipework, and the Denso Petrolatum Tape system as per SA Water TS 29 for the flanges and new hydrant and risers.

This project will extend the life of the main for at least another 50 years.
