September Reserve Board meeting recap

The West Melton Reserve Board met on September 15, 2014. The following was discussed.

WM Reserve Pop-up Irrigation Project
Drummond & Etheridge are currently undertaking an irrigation upgrade project at the reserve. The works involve the construction of a ring main and installation of pop-up sprinklers across rugby and football fields. This will significantly improve the efficiency of the irrigation system, resulting in better utilisation of water and more even grass growth. The fields are currently fenced off while the works are underway due to the use of heavy machinery. Works are expected to completed by the end of September.

WM Reserve Rugby Field 1 Development
McLenaghan Contracting are currently undertaking a project to re-grade and re-seed Rugby Field 1 at the reserve. The works have involved the stripping of topsoil, re-grading of the underlying gravels and the placement of an even thickness of topsoil over the playing area. The works are being completed in conjunction with the irrigation project and will improve the condition of the main rugby field. The fields are currently fenced off while the works are underway due to the use of heavy machinery. Works are expected to completed by the end of September.
