With the Mill Creek Dam earthworks finalised in June, the remaining works for the Spillway, access road construction, instrumentation, downstream pipeline, valve arrangement and outlet pipe inlet were completed in July. Considering the time of year and often unfavourable weather conditions, substantial productivity was still able to be achieved with the spillway construction including 5 consecutive days of pouring concrete allowing works to be completed on the 13th July 2018.
This timing ended up being quite critical, with significant rainfall encountered for the remainder of July and into August.
The considerable effort and commitment shown by all personnel involved in this project is greatly appreciated and has allowed these critical time-lines to be met. The dam is currently filling and is a credit to all those involved.
