About the project

Pensar was engaged for the design and construction replacement of the existing Forresters Beach booster station, due to its ageing condition.


Forresters Beach, New South Wales

Client & Duration

Central Coast Council
August 2020 - June 2021

Project Scope

  • Construction of a new precast concrete panel water pump station, building on a concrete piled foundation, with separate switchroom, gas chlorine dosing room and storeroom
  • Installation and commissioning of above and below ground DN300 DICL/HDPE pipework with 2 x no. LS-split case pumps for on/off duty operation
  • Installation and commissioning of the client supplied switchboard
  • Design and installation of a new gas chlorine dosing system


  • Ground conditions on site were challenging throughout the project. Located in a flood prone area, the ground retained moisture which was exacerbated by several instances of continuous heavy rain and leaking existing infrastructure
  • Pensar performed additional works including service interruptions and fitting replacements to aid Central Coast Council in managing the leaking infrastructure


  • Pensar performed multiple live main cut-ins with zero issues. This also included DN300mm live tapings and successful commissioning of the upgraded pump station
  • Working closely with chlorine dosing specialists, Pensar designed and implemented a completely new chlorine dosing system which included booster pumps, multi-directional dosing, and analysing and sample return pump and pipework
