The city of Tamworth had all but dried out before emergency drought works redirected the Peel River reservoir.
NPE supplied and installed three 200-180 sound attenuated pumps, for a client managing emergency drought works, to keep taps on for the city of Tamworth.
The Stage One works were part of emergency drought management measures at Dungowan.
A temporary weir and pipeline were installed for NPE’s pumps to redirect water from the river into Tamworth’s existing water supply infrastructure.
The installation, servicing and maintenance of the pumps was completed by NPE – ensuring the client was able to successfully complete the river diversion project on time.

Water NSW ensured a small amount of water was set aside to keep local fish populations alive.

At the project’s completion, the removal of the temporary weir required a diversion of the Peel River. NPE supplied multiple pumps and completed deliveries outside of hours to support our client. The project was demobilised just days before the Peel River saw its first quenching rains in several years.
