This extensive, complex project is a testament to HASLIN’s ability to deliver major state water infrastructure projects. It was completed on time despite ongoing, inclement weather in the region throughout the build phase.
“Since 2008, HASLIN have delivered over $70 Million worth of Water Treatment projects together with Greg Mashiah and the Clarence Valley Council team. The cooperative approach we both embrace allows us to provide high quality infrastructure for Clarence Valley residents.”
