Clare Valley Region Water Supply Scheme

Clare Valley Region Water Supply Scheme

Water resources in the Clare Valley Region were fully committed while opportunity for further viticulture and other irrigated agricultural development was expected to be limited without additional water. Augmentation of the supply from the Swan Reach – Paskeville pipeline to the surrounding areas was required to ensure the reliability of service across the Barossa Valley, Mid North and Yorke Peninsula. SA Water decided to implement a large-scale project to improve the water supply across the Clare Valley region and to improve the potable water supply to surrounding areas. 

To assist SA Water in achieving their objectives, Nova Systems were engaged to provide project management across the entire project and to perform a number of services including: Project management, risk management, Environmental impact assessments, funds approvals, project implementation, management reporting and contract administration. At the completion of the project, all of the project’s objectives were realised to the satisfaction of the client. 

This project highlighted the importance of ensuring that the contract documentation clearly defines the statutory obligations of the contractor prior to commencing construction work. Principally this allows the contractor to recognise potential delays in obtaining required approvals. It is also important to ensure that the contract close-out obligations of the contractors are fully defined in the contract documentation, and that the contractor’s requirement to prepare Environmental Management Plans, Job Safety and Environmental Analysis’ and similar documentation fully captures the client’s expectations.
