Two pumping stations have been commissioned as part of the $25 million Moss Vale Road wastewater project, designed to service 3,500 new houses in Nowra’s north.

The wastewater project by Shoalhaven Water sees the construction of three pumping stations and sewer mains which transfer sewage from Illaroo Road to Bomaderry wastewater treatment plant for processing. The third and final pumping station and sewer mains are expected to be commissioned in mid 2024. 

Shoalhaven Water Executive Manager, Rob Horner, said that the team had reached a major milestone on the project which started in 2019 (design phase) and is due to be completed in mid-2024. 

“This new infrastructure is critical to servicing Shoalhaven’s newest suburb of Badagarang and the thousands of residents this area will attract. 

“Once operational, the effluent collected will be transferred to our Bomaderry Wastewater Treatment Plant for processing.

“As part of our wastewater recycling scheme, this treated water will be beneficially reused on local farms, sporting fields and golf courses.” 

Mr Horner said that the new suburb of Badagarang covers 425ha between Bomaderry and Cambewarra Village and that the project will provide infrastructure to ensure efficient wastewater processing and clean fresh drinking water to the new housing development. 

Running concurrently with the sewerage project, a $15 million water supply project is set to see high quality drinking water ready to be delivered to new homes as they are built. The project includes the construction of water mains, a new water pumping station on Illaroo Road and a new reservoir in Reservoir Lane, Cambewarra.  

The water project is also nearing completion with testing and commissioning underway across the area.  

Both projects were funded by Shoalhaven Water with around $5 million in grant funding under the New South Wales Government’s Housing Acceleration Fund.
