The Western Australian Government’s infill sewerage project in Busselton (WA) is complete, with 381 homes now connected to a central wastewater system.
WA Water Minister, Mia Davies, said the Water Corporation had invested $17.5million on the infill sewerage project in Abbey and Broadwater in West Busselton.
“The completion of this infill sewerage project is great news for local residents, as infill sewerage provides social and environmental benefits for the community,” Ms Davies said.
“Wastewater from these lots can now be carried direct through a system of buried pipes and pump stations, to a central treatment plant for processing and disposal.
“This will eliminate the need for about 381 septic tanks which will help protect the environmentally sensitive Geographe Bay area.”
Residents in Abbey and Broadwater will soon receive notification about connection to the system from the corporation.
The Infill Sewerage Program has provided more than 93,000 households in metropolitan and regional Western Australia access to the central wastewater system, reducing the impact on the environment.
