Job description
Project Manager - Pipeline Project - Northern Suburbs

Melbourne Water is planning to build a new pipeline to meet growing demand for water in the northern and western suburbs of Greater Melbourne and to support development in the planned growth area.
The new pipeline will improve the reliability of water supply in the northern suburbs and free up capacity to transfer more water to the western suburbs. The project involves construction of a 20km pipeline from the Yan Yean Water Treatment Plant to the proposed Bald Hill, Kalkallo tank site.  
Why this project is important?
Melbourne’s population is projected to increase from 4.6 million in 2016 to 6 million in 2031, and ultimately to 8 million people in 2051. Around 60% of this growth is expected to occur in Melbourne’s northern and western suburbs, with 851,000 new residents projected by 2031 (Victoria in Future 2016, Victorian Government).
The new pipeline has been designed and timed to meet growing water demands and improve reliability of supply in the northern suburbs, while freeing up capacity to transfer more water to the western suburbs.
Yan Yean to Bald Hill pipeline
As part of a related project in the area, we are planning to build a new pipeline to improve the reliability of water supply in the northern suburbs and free up capacity to transfer more water to the western suburbs.
The project involves construction of a new 20-kilometre pipeline from the Yan Yean Water Treatment Plant to the Bald Hill, Kalkallo tank site, as shown on the following map. As the new pipeline will be constructed to transfer water, no connections will be made to properties along the alignment.
What we’re looking for
Our construction team is almost, with the one missing piece being a Project Engineer with a minimum of three years of water experience. If this is you and you would like to start 2023 by working with us reshaping Melbourne water landscape, feel free to call on 0413 894 849 or email Philip.okane@fetchrecruit.com.au for more information.
