Lower Lakes Irrigation Pipeline and Pump Stations Project

Lower Lakes Irrigation Pipeline and Pump Stations Project

The Langhorne and Currency Creeks (LCCC) region relies on irrigation suppliers with water sourced from the Lower Lakes to contribute $700 million to South Australia’s annual horticultural industry. To continue the region’s viability during worsening drought conditions, an irrigation supply system was constructed by SA Water, from the River Murray (at Jervois).

Nova Systems was engaged by SA Water to provide project management, contract administration and on-site contractor supervision and observation services. This was to be provided across project approval and procurement through to commissioning and handover. Tight timeframes were also impacting the urgency of the project due to the need for the irrigation supply to be in place before certain stages of the growing period impacting the irrigators. This necessitated rapid design and construction in advance of the irrigation season to provide secure supply of water in time for the growing period.

Nova System’s successful approach to risk, stakeholder and contractor management enabled substantial completion of the 130 mega litre per day system being achieved within five months of construction commencement. This project highlighted the importance of creating a set of behavioural ground rules to establish relationship parameters when working in teams as a means to manage different objectives and agendas.
