Irrigation at Bernie Regan Sporting Complex

Surface Quality Improvements Completed at Bernie Regan Sporting Complex

Shoalhaven City Council is pleased to announce the completion of irrigation works at Bernie Regan Sporting Complex at North Nowra.

The installation was jointly funded by Council and the NSW Government with a total project cost of $240,000. Works included the installation of phone based smart controllers that can be programmed to optimise turf growth whilst minimising water usage.

This installation will greatly improve the surface quality at the complex which is home to both the North Nowra Cricket Club and Illaroo Football Club.

Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley is delighted with the water efficiency improvements and the benefit to the sporting community.

“Improvements to infrastructure is essential to ensure these facilities can host high quality events and be utilised by the community all year round,” she said.

“Council is committed to securing investments in our region to improve infrastructure and ensure our community has the high class facilities they expect and deserve,” said Clr Findley.

This irrigation project follows on from other recent installations including Sanctuary Point Oval, Bomaderry Sporting Complex, Nowra Showground added area and Ray Abood Oval in Cambewarra all of which were co-funded with the NSW Government.

Further field works undertaken through the NSW Government funding included the installation of subsurface drainage at Ulladulla Sporting Complex and Sanctuary Point Oval. These installations allow for rapid field recovery following high rainfall events.
