New pump casings have been installed at Oxley Park recently after being delayed for several years due to Covid-19 and extended periods of flooding. 

With discussions with Water NSW identifying a small window of opportunity for the removal and replacement of old river pump structures, Ryan Mason Engineering and B & D Brouff Earthmoving Pty Ltd prioritised these works to ensure they could be carried out within the tight timeframe.

This project has been on hold since 2021, when pumps at both Oxley Park Reservoir and Ellengerah Reservoir failed. When the Ellengerah Reservoir pump was diagnosed as being unable to be salvaged, it was decided to reconfigure the pumps at Oxley Park to improve the accessibility of the pumps for maintenance.

Now with the pump casings installed, Splat Plumbing can begin manufacturing the pipework that connects the pumps to the Oxley Park Reservoir. Once this is complete, B & D Brouff Earthmoving can finish off the concreting works to lock the new pumps into place, and RJ & BA Sayers can finalise the electrical connections so the pumps can be tested and commissioned back into service.

With the completion of this project, the Warren river water system will have had all pumps refurbished or replaced over the last two years at a cost in excess of $150,000.
