River Murray Lock 8 and Lock 9 Options Evaluation

McConnell Dowell has been undertaking various works packages to rehabilitate Melbourne’s Swanson Dock East for The Port of Melbourne Operations. Fifteen50 worked throughout the 2019 / 20 financial year with Concrete Protection and Repair Services and McConnell Dowell to deliver concrete rehabilitation works on fender beams and deck repairs at Swanson Dock Berth 2.

Our quality assurance services, to ensure compliance with construction Drawings and Specifications, were delivered through the coordination of site inspection and testing plan activities. Specific site surveillance activities covered by Fifteen50 included supervision and documentation of steel reinforcement augmentation, weld integrity testing, sacrificial anode testing, concrete compressive strength testing, crack repair product applications and protective coating applications

Edward River Council Pump Assessments

Regional local government bodies that are managing ageing infrastructure require a considered approach to asset planning and management to balance their expenditure with customer service expectations.

Fifteen50 have been working closely with Edward River Council to conduct a formal condition assessment of its fleet of water supply and wastewater pumping infrastructure, developing a detailed analysis of future maintenance and replacement profiles. The assessments are completed in accordance with the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) codes.

Nimmie-Caira Project

A $180 million water saving project in the lower reaches of the Murrumbidgee River, between Maude and Balranald. The property spans over 84,000 ha of the Lowbidgee floodplain, incorporating high value wetlands.

Swanson Dock East Rehabilitation

The NSW Healthy Floodplains Project is reforming the management of water on NSW floodplains and is responsible for implementation of the Floodplain Harvesting Policy to license and limit floodplain harvesting water extractions.

Fifteen50 assisted the Healthy Floodplains Project in December 2019 by facilitating five focus groups throughout northern NSW Murray-Darling basin on the Draft Floodplain Harvesting Measurement Policy. Fifteen50 staff delivered these services based on our technical understanding of water measurement systems and our ability to communicate this with landowners and irrigators in simple language.
Fifteen50 is currently developing extension materials for floodplain harvesting licensees to understand their measurement compliance obligations under the Policy.

NSW Floodplain Harvesting Measurement Policy Communications

One of the NSW Government’s major responses to the Murray Darling Basin Plan is the NSW Sustainable Diversion Limit Adjustment Mechanism (SDLAM) program. One of the SDLAM projects is aimed at changing the Lock 8 and Lock 9 weir pool operating levels from a fixed elevation to a seasonally varied pattern. The project will provide broad environmental benefits when delivered together with a number of measures for improving fish passage including projects on Frenchmans Creek and the Carrs, Cappitts and Bunbaroo Creeks.

Fifteen50 worked with the NSW DPIE to prepare an Options Evaluation assessment which will ensure the justification for the project and its delivery framework are consistent with the NSW Gateway (Gate 1) process.

Salt Interception Schemes

Salinity has been an enduring water quality
problem along the River Murray for decades and
the Murray Darling Basin Authority administers a
salt interception program to reduce the impacts on
the environment and community water supply.

It operates a significant asset portfolio which
requires ongoing review and update to ensure
assets are maintained to the required operational
standards.
