The contract to complete detailed engineering designs for Gippsland Water’s new outfall sewer pump station near the Port of Sale in Victoria has been awarded.
WSP was awarded the contract and design work has started.
Work is also underway at the site with demolition of a derelict building completed to make way for the new piece of infrastructure, which will be built on Foster Street, opposite the Police Station, on the site of the old car yard.
Gippsland Water’s General Manager Customer and Community, Paul Clark, said the new pump station will be a major improvement to Sale’s sewer network.
“This project will cater for population growth in Sale, Wurruk, and Fulham for the next 50 years. It will also allow us to demolish the existing outfall sewer pump station on Park Street,” Mr Clark said.
“The new pump station will feature industry-standard odour mitigation technology and reduce the likelihood of spills into Flooding Creek.
“We’re proud to support growth and liveability in our region by investing in projects that improve the capacity of our network and protect the environment.”
Construction is expected to be complete by April 2021.
