Recycled Water Rising Main Construction Update

Construction of the Recycled Water Rising Main pipeline has commenced under Phase 2 of the Parkes Recycled Water Scheme. The works will also include the construction of pump stations and a reservoir. The purple-pipeline scheme will deliver high quality recycled water to irrigate selected parks and sporting fields around town.


Council advises that construction work for the Recycled Water Rising Main will progress as follows:

  • Currajong Street  between Victoria Street and Mitchell Street from Tuesday 26 March to Thursday 28 March
  • Wentworth Street between Wednesday 27 March - Thursday 28 March

Residents will be able to access their properties during these times. Traffic control will be in place during the course of the works. Motorists, parents, and carers are urged to be extra vigilant when travelling to schools while road conditions are changed. Please allow additional time for your travel.

The works will be undertaken between 7:00am - 6:00pm weekdays. Saturday works are between 7:00am - 5:00pm. Sunday works are scheduled between 8:00am and 3:00pm
