Dubbo City Council will be proceeding with a major upgrade to the existing Erskine Street Sewage Pump Station (NSW).
Director Technical Services, Mr Stewart McLeod said the upgrade will meet the demands of future urban development beyond 2036.
“The existing pump station, which sits on a small parcel of land located on the corner of Erskine and Darling Streets, was constructed in 1928 and has significant operational and safety issues,” he said.
“By modern standards, the existing pump station has a number of deficiencies and the planned upgrade will help prepare for the future growth of the City,” Mr McLeod said.
“The new sewage pump station will comprise a new 5.4 metre diameter wet-well, approximately 11 metres deep containing a total of three pumps, a 900kL underground emergency storage tank, created by modifying the existing pump well, a new electrical switchboard and controls, a new 500kVa standby diesel generator for backup power supply, an odour control and monitoring system and an all weather access road within the pump station site,” Mr McLeod said.
“Council is inviting tenders for construction of the Erskine Street Sewage Pump Station Upgrade Works and new Rising Main,” he said.
