      Directional drill (10%): patches for services/connection
      Open excavation (70%): reinstate the whole length

    • 44. August 22, 2011
      Yarra Valley Water Ltd
      Road Management Act 2004
      Utilities defined duties and responsibilities
      should carry out reinstatement works within a reasonable time
      will be responsible for arranging permanent reinstatement
      Road to be restored as close as reasonably practicable to its original condition
      Extent of works to be established between the road authority and the utility
    • 45. YVW Aims
      Replace the water main;
      Minimise impact to the community;
      Minimise community cost;
      Complete works to council satisfaction;
      Complete work in a safe manner
      Complete permanent reinstatement within 6 weeks;
      Avoid working in recently reinstated road.
    • 46. YVW drivers
      Reinstatement accounts for about 30% of our costs;
      Happy to work towards least community cost;
      Incentive to minimise these costs;
      Hoping to be more pro-active with water main renewals. Currently not getting many bursts so few high priority mains;
      Currently trying to combine water main renewals with road resurfacing program: adapting our program with Councils, could councils adapt their program to ours?
    • 47. Concerns
      Generally come to agreement with council when water main is on the edge of road pavement;
      Difference of opinion arise when YVW main is in the centre of a lane or in the middle of the street;
      Requests sometimes include reinstatement beyond Auspecguidelines
      YVW’s understanding of reinstatement requirements:
      the importance of a straight cut,
      not having a join where the wheel will run
      council concern when the road is new and YVW puts a trench through it
      importance of preventing water ingress.
      Road management clause: “return the road back to its existing condition prior to the works” unclear what exactly this means.
    • 48. Trench reinstatement design
    • 49. Areas to work on with council
      Keep working on the relationship to get best outcome for the community; Common aim is a happy customer
      Better guidelines about reasonable extent of reinstatement: Previous attempts to build upon, perhaps revisit work completed in 2006;
      Ensuring water main renewals and roadworks programs align as much as possible;
      Maintaining the quality of our reinstatement
      Any benefits from working with MAV?
      Closer working with councils in major commercial high profile areas
      Happy to receive feedback from council so that we can learn and improve.
      Education on good road repair practices and council issues
