Works will soon begin on new sewerage infrastructure in three remote villages in New South Wales after the completion of the planning and tendering phase of the Pressure Sewer Project.
The villages of Lake Wyangan, Nericon and Tharbogang received a grant for the construction of sewer infrastructure from the NSW Government as part of Restart NSW Water Security for Regions Program.
The sewer project was awarded to Hills to Harbour Plumbing for the installation and commissioning works for the scheme and for individual property drainage connections to the system.
Griffith City Council’s General Manager, Brett Stonestreet, said that the sewerage project has been designed to ensure minimal impact on the local community.
Mr Stonestreet said the installation of pressure pipelines within the roads will largely be by directional boring with access excavations only required for connections and installation of valves and flush points, and the first pipelines to be installed will be the reticulation comprising the street mains to the property boundary valve and transfer mains.
Works within private properties are expected to begin in late March or April 2018.
Works are expected to be completed in August 2018.
