Gosford City Council is investing around $1 million to improve the performance of three sewage pump stations servicing Kariong, Forresters Beach and Yattalunga.

The Council’s Director of Water and Sewer, Rod Williams, said the works are an important part of ensuring the reliability and capacity of each station.

“These three pump stations, which currently service over 6,000 residents, have been operating for around 30 years,” Mr Williams said.

“By replacing ageing parts and equipment at each station we’ll be able to improve current service levels in these areas and also cater for extra demand as the population grows.

“The works will also help safeguard the community and environment against sewer overflows and odours.”

Work is expected to start this month and be completed in early 2013.

“With over 180 pump stations operating across the Gosford region, each station is a vital component of our sewage transfer network,” Mr Williams added.

“Council currently spends between five and seven million dollars each year to make sure ageing pump stations continue to perform satisfactorily.

“Works to improve the performance of eight other pump stations, including stations in East Gosford, Terrigal, Ettalong and Woy Woy, have been completed this year.”
