Dam Improvement Program


This risk-based program was developed and headed by Shane to implement a series of improvements to Goulburn-Murray Water’s dam portfolio. The program has been undertaken in a staged manner over 15 years with 14 individual projects undertaken at a total cost of $140M.

The Yarrawonga Weir project for the Murray-Darling Basin Commission was awarded an Excellence award by the Institution of Engineers. The Eildon project, the first full Alliance project in the Victorian public sector, was also highly commended by the Institution.

The program included the development of a risk-based decision making framework for improvements, establishment of the implementation team, procurement strategy and execution of all works.
