Water officer Jackson MacGregor-Cobbo was snapped at work this week while in group training with the crew from Bundaberg Regional Council.
Our Operations Manager, Darren Lonergan tells us CASC have been hosting the trainer and trainees for Cert. II in Water and sewerage Operations course over three days this week. Roughly half of the time is academic and theory while the rest of the time is spent inf the field getting hands on. Units of the course are:
• Prepare and restore worksite
• Maintain and repair network assets for drinking water
• Install, maintain and repair hydrants
1 trainer and 4 trainees have been attending the 3rd block of the course here at the CASC depot training room, while field works have included an audit of sluice valves and hydrants in our town water reticulation network.
Yellow coloured pavement paint is used to mark the road and kerb where there is a hydrant. White coloured pavement paint is used to mark the road and kerb where there are sluice valves. Notes are recorded of the works done and any issues reported to CASC. This work will ensure that the valves and hydrants can be quickly identified especially hydrants by firefighters attending to a fire at night.
