GHD provided design and approvals services to
help the Councils achieve the project objective - to improve the
harvesting of water flows from the Wyong River into Mardi Dam, the
transfer of excess water for storage in the Mangrove Creek Dam, and
the return of water to Mardi Dam in times of low capacity.
In the initial stages of the project, the route
corridor selected by Councils for the long (19km) pipeline was
found to present significant engineering and socio-economic
challenges. GHD led the process for the identification of
alternative options, and the recommendation for a changed alignment
was accepted in the project’s early stages.
The Mardi-Mangrove Link Project won the
Engineers Australia 2012 Infrastructure Excellence in Regional
Communities Award and received a highly commended mention for
