Sydney Water is currently spending around $1,639,200 on wastewater infrastructure in the Camden area, 65km southwest of the Sydney CBD.
The comprehensive work will take place in Mount Annan.
The work was welcomed by Member for Camden, Chris Patterson.
“This is a great investment into essential services for our community,” Mr Patterson 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 will 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.”
During the work Sydney Water will work with the local community, Councils, residents, and businesses to ensure as little disruption as possible.
