A new $3.32 million pressure sewer system that utilises grinder pumps has been completed in South Kempsey, New South Wales, promising growth and opportunity for local industry.

The South Kempsey Pressure Sewer Scheme has been built by Kempsey Shire Council in partnership with Eire Constructions.

The scheme consists of an industry best practice reticulated sewerage system with a network of pressure pipes and grinder pumps that connect this largely industrial area to the local sewer network.

Council received $2.32 million for the project under the New South Wales Government’s Growing Local Economies Fund.

Kempsey Shire Council Mayor, Leo Hauville, joined Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey, and Executive Director of Eire Constructions, Eamon Kelliher, to officially open the South Kempsey Pressure Sewer Scheme on Monday 26 September.

“The construction of the South Kempsey Pressure Sewer benefits our shire greatly,” said Mr Hauville.

“The new system means business owners in South Kempsey can grow their business without land limitations as there is now no need for onsite septic tanks. Another benefit is cutting costs associated with carting sewage.”

Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey, said this is another example of the New South Wales Government’s Growing Local Economies Fund building more job opportunities.

“This is about investing in regional business hubs to allow them to expand and make it easier to do business, while improving the environment,” said Ms Pavey.

“The Growing Local Economies grant will boost the local economy, create jobs and bring more people to our community and enjoy the lifestyle we all know and love.”
