Central Highlands Water (CHW) has awarded the contract to construct a new sewer pump station and wet weather detention storage facility in Ballarat, Victoria.
Jaydo Construction has been awarded the contract to construct the new facilities which are expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
Board Director at Central Highlands Water, Rachel Thomson, said that CHW continues to focus on the performance and lifetime of their infrastructure networks, ensuring the liveability and well being of customers, enabling the region to achieve its potential for economic development.
“This major sewer project continues our successful collaboration with the City of Ballarat with the new facility to ensure that the ongoing development in the Ballarat West Urban Growth Zone (BWUGZ) and new residential developments, including Lucas Estate, Carngham Road and Alfredton West precincts can be accommodated and managed,” Mrs Thomson said.
“The new facility provides capacity for 5800 residential lots and has a back-up generator for continual power supply.
“The key benefits of the new facility will also support the management of flows during a one in five year rainfall event, provide capacity for future growth and development and optimises the Waste Water Treatment Plant and our investment into the region’s wastewater services,” Mrs Thomson said.
