Determine how to resolve issues that may affect Wellington’s water supply system. Also manage the safety of the Macaskill Lakes and Karori Dams.
I have been involved in the design, construction, operation and planning of Wellington’s water supply system since 1980.
Seeing the successful commissioning of a new or upgraded part of the water supply system.
Preparing project briefs for design and construction work to be carried out next year. Reviewing reports and designs for upgrading the water supply system. Revising the dam safety management system for the Macaskill Lakes.
Design and construction of a lowered spillway on the Wainuiomata Lower Dam, forming a small lake and wetland.
When commissioning a new pipeline a vacuum relief valve was left closed while draining the pipe. There was a loud bang and one of the pipes imploded. I learnt you should have a detailed commissioning plan and to check all valves before starting.
