The $180 million Nimmie-Caira Project is a significant water saving project for NSW and particularly for the Murrumbidgee region.
Nimmie-Caira is part of the Lowbidgee floodplain, the largest remaining area of wetlands in the Murrumbidgee Valley within the southern Murray Darling Basin. This floodplain and its associated wetlands systems are areas of national and international significance.
AWMA were engaged by Comdain Infrastructure to provide infrastructure upgrades and maintenance capabilities, protecting and maintaining cultural, agricultural and environmental assets.
AWMA's scope of works included the custom-design and manufacture of LayFlat and Undershot gates in a variety of sizes and configurations. A total of eight LayFlats and 16 ULF gates were manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel, across 14 sites with associated handrails.
Electrical cabinets with solar and batteries were also provided to allow remote SCADA capabilities.
