The Council’s Director of Water and Sewer, Rod Williams, said the new $2.6 million pipeline is an important part of the Coastal Carrier System Upgrade Project.
“This major sewerage transfer system services some of the region’s most popular coastal suburbs, including Forresters Beach, Terrigal, North Avoca, Avoca and Kincumber,” Mr Williams said.
“With the existing system ageing and as the population grows in these areas, new pipelines like this one in Kincumber will improve the performance, reliability and capacity of our sewerage network.
“Importantly, these works will protect the community and environment against overflows and odours.”
Upcoming works in Kincumber will involve building a new pipeline around 1.5 kilometres long between Elimatta Road and Frost Reserve.
Construction is expected to start in early April 2013 and take around six months to complete.
“A series of new multi-million dollar pipelines are being built as part of this project,” Mr Williams added.
“We finished building another $4 million pipeline in Kincumber last year, work on a $3.5 million pipeline in North Avoca is almost complete and construction of a $5.2 million pipeline in Avoca will start this month. https://www.pumpindustry.com.au/5-2-million-wastewater-pipeline-in-avoca-gets-the-go-ahead/915/
“Four sewage pump stations across North Avoca, Avoca and Kincumber are also being upgraded to boost their operation.”
The Coastal Carrier System Upgrade Project is expected to be completed in 2015.
