Posted on June 3, 2011Driving better environmental outcomes for the civil industry, JHL Civil has expanded its service offering to include trenchless technology. JHL Drilling has been launched into the market with a brand new Ditch Witch 4020AT. The Ditch Witch machine was chosen for its ability to steer in rock.
Industry reports suggest that there are significant benefits for the use of a directional drilling machine over open cut machinery. Our client base are taking a move to a greater acceptance of trenchless techniques which is supported through updates in the new version of the Water Suppliers Agency Code, to be released later this year.

JHL Civil has been awarded a contract to construct a 23 km water pipeline connecting the Victorian townships of Raywood and Sebastian to the Bendigo water supply system.
The project was identified several years ago and was postponed in 2006 due to ongoing low rainfall impacting on Bendigo’s available water supply. A focus was placed on improving Bendigo’s water security to ensure the system could support future pipelines to connect smaller towns such as Raywood and Sebastian.

Posted on January 22, 2010JHL Civil has been awarded the contract to construct a Recycled Water Main from the Altona Treatment Plant to Qenos Olefins based on the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability and awareness.
The 3.7km 400mm HDPE pipeline is required to be constructed through coastal saltmarsh, plains grassland and spiny rice flower.
JHL Civil is renowned for its teams ability to manage pipeline construction through sensitive native vegetation as proven in projects such as the Traralgon to Rosedale recycled water pipeline, Woodend Racecourse recycled water pipeline, Aireys Inlet to Anglesea recycled water pipeline and Falls Creek Gravity main amongst others.

Construction will commence in February 2010.
Posted on July 19, 2009JHL Civil has recently been announced successful tenderer for the design, supply and construction of a 5 ML steel bolted tank (with liner) and all associated appurtenances, pipework and fittings for storage of Class A recycled water on behalf of Western Water.
Western Water has recently completed the commissioning of the Class A Recycled Water Plant located at Surbiton Park, Mt Cottrell (nearby Melton South). The Class A plant contains an existing 3.5 ML storage tank (No. 1) at the end of the treatment train, from which Class A water flows to a recently completed pumping station for transfer to recycled water customers including a third pipe network.
Western Water intends to construct a new storage tank (No. 2) at Surbiton Park to provide additional storage to meet interim demands. In the future, once additional storage is constructed in the recycled water system, this tank may provide additional capacity for chlorine contact time to meet the increased Class A plant capacity in the future.
The works are expected to be complete by November this year.

Walwa Wastewater Project promotes improved services for residents
A dedicated team at Towong Shire Council has worked closely with residents of the Walwa Community to deliver improved sewerage services for the town.
Following feedback from Walwa residents, Council is also investigating alternative treatment processes to the wetland solution initially identified with a final decision to be made in the near future.
The scheme currently involves the collection of septic tank effluent from properties in the township of Walwa with discharge to a wetlands treatment area just north of the sportsground. The treated water will then be utilised to irrigate the football oval via a subsurface system.
This innovative and environmentally sustainable project attracted a $250,000 grant from Regional Development Victoria in 2007 with the view that the project will be completed by September 2009. Council has committed a further $75,000 toward the project with a remaining $195,000 recoverable from the benefiting property owners.
The works tender was awarded to JHL Civil Pty Ltd / GROMENG Pty Ltd who are responsible for the following key tasks:
- The design of the wastewater collection and treatment system and for obtaining the necessary planning and works approvals.
- The construction and operation (for the 12 month defects liability period) of the wastewater collection and disposal system.
In an effort to further support benefiting property owners, Council has submitted a Small Towns Water Quality Fund Application for the “Walwa Community Innovative Wastewater Project” which, if successful, will substantially reduce the benefiting property owner contributions.
Contractors JHL Civil Pty Ltd have completed their on-site surveys and commenced the design process. Once complete, the design will be placed on public exhibition for comment and approval.
Partnering communities rewards sustainable environmental outcomes and improved services for residents.
