The Team from Wellington Water

There are a lot of reasons to dig up a road, unfortunately! Here’s one of the less common belowground infrastructure renewals we do.

Digger Operator Layton is removing an old air valve block on the bulk water main running from Naenae Reservoir. The team put in a new, bigger air valve (replacing the one just visible in the wooden chamber) then constructed a new concrete chamber and manhole cover for better service and maintenance access.
