“I would like to express our appreciation of behalf of all the water Corporation people involved in the Wungong and Canning CDP projects, for the excellent results that have been achieved on both projects. Through the many challenges that arose on these projects, with changes in schedule and uncovering many technical gremlins among them, Laszlo and Nick stayed focused on the end result and achieved the earlier dates that we requested to fit in with our overall development plan. These were significant achievements and I am sure that there were plenty more people involved who should also be recognised.”
