The NSW Government has announced that residents in West Hoxton, Sydney are now able to connect to the new $9 million wastewater system.
“This scheme was promised at the last election and we are committed to keeping our promises and improving infrastructure across the state,” Minister for Finance and Services Andrew Constance said.
“It’s great news that Sydney Water has helped us to not only deliver this scheme ahead of time but also under budget.
“With around 91 connections available, residents that connect will save hundreds of dollars, help reduce odours and eliminate damp and seepage on their properties caused by on-site systems such as septic tanks and pump-out services.
“Connections are now available for eligible customers and I encourage residents to talk to their plumbers and arrange connection as soon as possible.”
Ned Mannoun, the Mayor of Liverpool City Council, welcomed the announcement.
“Liverpool is the regional city of South West Sydney and Council welcomes the NSW Government’s continued investment in critical infrastructure for the growing population.”
The scheme was delivered by an alliance between Sydney Water, MWH Australia Pty Ltd, John Holland Group Pty Ltd, United Group Infrastructure Ltd and RPS Australia Asia Pacific.
The West Hoxton Wastewater Scheme is part of the $170 million Priority Sewerage Program to deliver improved wastewater services to six village areas by 30 June 2014.
