MidCoast Water will use CCTV to identify potential problems for sewer lines in the NSW town of Taree.
The six week closed circuit television investigation program aims to correctly map the sewer network, and identify any issues so they can be resolved.
MidCoast Water will then conduct periodic cleaning of the mains.
MidCoast Water’s acting general manager, Darryl Hancock, said,“This type of investigation is important to the ongoing maintenance of our assets,”
“This investigation program also allows us to document the condition of pipes which then determines where maintenance is most needed – just because our sewer pipes are out of sight doesn’t mean they are out of our minds.”
The investigation work does not impact on services to homes, however to conduct the tests MidCoast Water contractors may need to gain access to some properties within the testing area.
Areas affected by the investigations include Tallawong Drive, Alonbar Crescent, Uki Place, Ann Street, Court Place, Hillcrest Close, Killawarra Drive, Narla Place, Carbeen Close, Allumba Close, Patanga Close, Urara Lane and Manikato Place.
