Unitywater will replace an aging section of sewer pipe from under Weyba Creek in Noosa (QLD).
The replacement will see 350 metres of new pipe installed to upgrade old infrastructure and protect the Noosa River.
The works will involve drilling 10 metres under Weyba Creek, and installing a new pipe parallel to the existing infrastructure. The drilling section of the project will be carried out continuously during the day from Monday to Sunday, to prevent the tunnel from closing and the drill becoming stuck.
Works will begin in October 2015 and be completed before Christmas, with the Weyba Creek waterway remaining open to recreational users.
The new section of pipe will run from the northern side of Weyba Creek, near the corner of Ravenswood Drive and Mossman Court, under Weyba Creek to Council land adjacent to Settler’s Cove, off Serenity Close.
