Sydney Water is investing around $293,500 on wastewater infrastructure in Baulkham Hills, North Rocks, Old Toongabbie and Winston Hills.
The work was welcomed by the Member for Baulkham Hills, David Elliott.
“This is a great investment into essential services for our community,” Mr Elliott said. “This work will improve the wastewater system and protect public health and the environment, reducing the risk of wastewater overflows.”
Work has begun and is on track to be completed by the end of October.
The work involves:
• inspecting and repairing maintenance holes
• inspecting pipes with closed circuit television
• cleaning pipes
• installing liners
• rehabilitating pipe junctions
Sydney Water Managing Director Kevin Young said the investment is part of a broader $246 million spend across Sydney Water’s wastewater network and treatment plants for 2013-14.
“We provide water and wastewater services to more than four million people across the Sydney, Illawarra and the Blue Mountains,” he said. “This investment will help ensure reliable service for our customers.”
Sydney Water intends to work with the local community, Councils, residents, and businesses to ensure as little disruption as possible during the work.
