North East Civil Construction have installed a total of approximately 150 Electro Magnetic Flow meters to suit various sized 50mm to 700mm diameter pipe in the Murrumbidgee area in 2012-2013.
These meters were installed to improve the measurement of water extracted from the Murrumbidgee River. This project aims to generate water savings, improve the health of wetlands and increase farmer’s productivity by implementing new methods of water measurement, reducing time to predict and monitor flows.
These flow meters were installed using a range of different installation methods. Connections were made using gibaults, flanges, bends, electro-fusion welding and butt-welding, with pipes being installed underground or above ground.
NECC currently have a 3 year contract with Goulburn Murray Water for the installation of irrigation meters throughout the Northern Victorian area.
This project incorporates the replacement of existing irrigation outlets (predominantly dethridge wheels) with modernised meter solutions.
