Over the next four years, New South Wales’ Central Coast Council will roll out significant upgrades and expansion works across its sewerage network, including upgrades to sewer pump stations.
The council currently has more than 320 sewerage pumping stations and eight sewage treatment plants which treat over 80 million litres of sewage on the Central Coast every day.
Like all infrastructure, the sewer pump stations in the area intermittently require repair and the council said it is investing in these essential services to ensure reliable sewer services and minimise the risk of odour related issues and sewer overflows, which can put residents and the environment at risk.
The council has been actively monitoring and testing the effectiveness of sewer pump stations across the Central Coast and these results indicate some stations are due for maintenance. The council have also recently completed an upgrade to Budgewoi’s Sewer Pump Station on Sonoma Road.
Other works underway include:
- Upgrade of The Entrance’s Sewer Pump Station on Boondilla Road
- Upgrade works at three Sewer Pump Stations in the Toukley area
The council are also continuing with its ongoing sewer mains rehabilitation program across the Central Coast which involves relining existing sewer pipes with a new structural lining which doesn’t disrupt services during works and will extend the life of the pipes by 50 years.
