Photos of pipeline stability work
11 Jan 2014
Photos taken on Friday afternoon. They show the concrete pour into the 2 steel columns that are 7 metres below the pipe. Then brackets as thick as the columns will be welded to the pipe.  This serves 2 purposes - one to protect the pipe from further land movement.  Secondly to support the pipe when the water is at full pressure. As the water hits the angle in the pipe and causes vibration known as 'water hammer'. Read more >>
Water pipe reconnected but needs to be stabilised
11 Jan 2014
A huge effort by Council staff and contractor Fulton Hogan has seen Gisborne’s main water pipe reconnected 4 days after it first broke. The pipeline bringing high quality water down from Mangopoike Dams to the Waingake Treatment Plant broke early on Tuesday morning. Since then a major repair job has been underway. The broken pipe was buried by 6 metres of material and had to be dug out. Large quantities of dirt and vegetation have been removed to unearth the pipe, extensive work completed to stabilise the site and gazebos have even been erected so that pipe welding could continue in the rain.

This was achieved yesterday. Thank you to all the Gisborne people who have made this happen.” Read more >>
