Water Mains Cleaning

Moree Plains Shire Council undertakes regular water mains cleaning program to improve the reliability of supply and remove built up grit and natural films in the lines. Mains cleaning programs are common practice in the water industry to improve or maintain drinking water quality, guideline requirements and customer expectations; it also helps Council collect important system asset information.

To clean the mains, compressed air is introduced through the water mains via the fire hydrant, it mixes with a small amount of water creating a turbulent flow, which removes grit and the natural films that occur on the inside of pipe walls.
