WARRAGAMBA DAM DEEP WATER ACCESS – BAULDERSTONE HORNIBROOK

This project was carried out to provide access to "deep water" at the bottom of Warragamba Dam which was previously inaccessible because it was below the level of the gravity feed pipe lines which transfers water from the Dam to the water treatment plant at Prospect.

DME installed the pipework (which reached up to 2.7m in diameter), valves and walkways in a cavern which was 65m underground.

This project was particularly challenge as all access from the cavern was from a 4m x 4m shaft
