Hilltops Council - Media Release - Works to Commence on the Campbell St Sewerage Pump Station Upgrade

Approved for release by: Anthony McMahon

_____________________________________________________________________

Council will shortly be commencing works to replace the existing sewerage pumping station in Campbell Street.  The existing pump station was built in the 1960’s and has reached the end of its useful life.  The new pump station will increase efficiency and safety and will incorporate remote monitoring to improve the operational performance.

Council engaged a specialist contractor, Precision Civil Infrastructure, in late 2015 to undertake the design and construction of the new pump station and provide the most cost effective solution to cater for the needs of the Boorowa community, now and into the future. 

Physical construction works are planned to begin on 23 May 2016 and are expected to be completed by late July subject to weather and ground conditions during construction.

The new pump station will be constructed adjacent to the existing structure and parts of the Campbell Street road verge will be fenced off during the works.  Campbell Street will remain open during the works but residents are requested to avoid the work vicinity wherever possible. 

It is not expected that there will be significant impacts to residents during the works. Plans and procedures are being put in place for suitable bypass pumping and emergency response arrangements to ensure that sewage flows continue seamlessly during the works.      

Further information can be accessed by contacting Council.
