Biniguy Potable Water Project - Building the Reservoirs

The construction was no mean feat and makes for some impressive viewing! The project will not only deliver a water supply for domestic use, but will also shore up the village’s fire-fighting abilities with hydrants installed throughout the village and a clean and reliable water supply provided to the Biniguy Rural Fire Station.
