Sydney Water’s new Pump Station in Liverpool has hit a new milestone, with almost 700m of pipeline installed under the Georges River.

The $35 million plus pump station will provide essential water and wastewater services to an additional 30,000 people anticipated to be living and working in the Liverpool CBD.

Sydney Water’s General Manager Asset Lifecycle, Paul Plowman, said reaching another milestone in this critical infrastructure project to service current and future growth is exciting.

“The rezoning of the Liverpool CBD has stimulated significant investment in the area, making it an attractive and affordable place to live and work,” Mr Plowman said.

“Liverpool will no doubt continue to grow as a major CBD, so it is important that we can provide essential water and wastewater services to cater to Sydney’s expanding south-west over the next 30 years.”

The projected growth is already underway, with an additional 6,886 dwellings forecast in the CBD by 2026, an extra 15,270 by 2036, an additional 20,960 by 2056, and more than 10,000 additional people working in the area.

The existing infrastructure could not support this scale of growth forecast, therefore, driving the need for Sydney Water to deliver an additional wastewater pump station, sewer and drinking water pipelines in Liverpool’s CBD.

This project has created jobs for over 400 workers who predominantly deliver infrastructure on site, and it is expected to be completed in October 2023.
