Lithgow City Council has announced a project to upgrade the Wallerawang sewerage pumping station, including a new well for emergency storage and new valve configuration.

Wallerawang’s sewerage infrastructure is currently undergoing important renewal works to cope with additional flows from new development in Wallerawang. 

The upgrade will deliver more efficient equipment which will reduce the running costs of the plant and provide greater storage volumes in the case of emergencies and shutdowns. This is better for the environment, as well as being more cost-effective.

A new, larger well is currently being constructed with increased emergency storage, and a new valve configuration which will improve operations and ensure the plant is operating to modern standards.

Lithgow City Council said it is focused on this issue because good sewerage infrastructure not only supports the daily lives of people and a city’s operation and growth, it also safeguards the environment.

The project will be completed by the end of June 2022 and delivered under budget.

    This has been an interesting project to work with Lithgow Council on, looking forward to completing another quality QMax Pumping Systems pump station, design and constructed to the requirements of the council and within the existing site compound.
