The saltwater lake system at Fairfield Waters was designed with its primary function to collect water during the wet season.  To increase circulation and prevent stagnation in the system, saltwater is pumped into Northview Lake from Ross River at every high tide.  It is then gravity fed into Lake 2, from which it flows into Lake 3, and finally drains out into Cleveland Bay.

The aim of this project was to supply and install the pump station providing the intake from Ross River. A 2.7m diameter x 4.2m deep FRP saltwater pump station with a 750mm concrete inlet structure was constructed on the banks of Ross River.
