Lake Eildon SpillwayGoulburn-Murray Water (GMW) has completed important remediation works on Lake Eildon Spillway.

SRG Global was contracted for the project, which required the strengthening of the existing joints and the repair of the chute floor concrete.

“SRG Global is extremely happy with the final outcome of the Eildon Spillway chute floor concrete remediation works,” SRG Global Building and Remedial general manager Adam O’Dea said.

“Working collaboratively with GMW on the project, we have handed over a quality product that was delivered safely and on program.”

About 4000 man-hours were deployed to complete the works.

GMW project manager Nick Pearce said he was glad the works were finished in good time, in readiness for spring operation.

“We are pleased to have the repairs completed well ahead of irrigation season,” he said.

“The works were completed within a fenced area of land not accessible to the public, so there was minimal disruption to the community and users on the lake while the project was being carried out.”

GMW Infrastructure Delivery Services general manager Warren Jose said the outcome of the project would benefit the lake’s various user groups.

“Lake Eildon stores water to supply to irrigated properties along the Goulburn River. It is also a popular tourist destination, with people visiting the lake to fish, swim, and water ski,” he said.

“SRG Global has done a fantastic job in difficult conditions. The repairs will ensure the lake remains a fantastic asset to the community for years to come.”
