Gippsland Water has awarded a contract to undertake civil works on a new outfall sewer pump station for Sale, Victoria.
Local company GBG Concrete & Construction was awarded the contract and is expected to begin site excavation in February 2019.
Sarah Cumming, Gippsland Water Managing Director, said, “The excavation will enable us to install a storage tank and wet well, which are essential to support the ongoing development and liveability of our region.
“When complete, this important piece of infrastructure will service Sale, Wurruk and Fulham for the next 65 years.”
Ms Cumming said the project had been carefully planned to reflect community feedback.
“We’ve been working with Wellington Shire Council and the community throughout the planning and design phase, and we’re excited to be incorporating a community-led concept for the fencing and planting of the site.”
The new outfall sewer pump station, expected to be completed in late 2020, is one of three Gippsland Water infrastructure projects being delivered in Sale during 2019, along with a sewer pump station on Raglan Street and a new main at the Sale Water Treatment Plant.
