Water Corporation will soon begin work to refurbish wastewater pipes in Como, Western Australia to extend the life of the infrastructure by at least 50 years.

Water Corporation General Manager, Assets Delivery, Nick Churchill, said the projects formed part of an ongoing program to reline and refurbish wastewater pipes across the State.

“Around 1.3km of wastewater pipe will be refurbished over the next five months,’’ Mr Churchill said.

“Work will be in the vicinity of Robert Street, Canning Highway, Park Street, Baldwin Street, Talbot Avenue and Saunders Street.”

Mr Churchill explained trenchless technology would be used to reline the wastewater pipes wherever possible.

“We use trenchless technology to reline wastewater pipes where possible, to minimise the impact on the community by reducing the need for extensive excavation,” Mr Churchill said.

“The community may notice an increase in activity along impacted pipeline routes, however traffic management will be in place at all times and disruption will be kept to a minimum.

“I thank the community for its patience while we carry out this essential work.’’

The refurbishment project will be completed in September 2018.

Water Corporation safely treats wastewater from homes and businesses across the State through more than 16,000km of wastewater mains.
