Drainage fix hoped to improve Woorndoo Recreation Reserve’s surface

FOOTBALLERS and cricketers at Woorndoo will soon enjoy an improved playing surface thanks to a drainage upgrade.

Woorndoo Recreation Reserve president Gary Cameron said the ground’s drainage system was currently being overhauled, with full ground drainage being installed to combat excess water laying on the surface.

Two 400 millimetre drains fitted with 250 millimetres of agi-pipe is being installed at the northern and southern ends of the ground.

Smaller drains fitted with 100 millimetre pipes will then run the full length of the ground into the bigger pipes.

The works are expected to cost more than $30,000 and local Woorndoo contractors are completing the works.
