Lithgow City Council, located in the Central West region of NSW, has reported progress on an Upgrade of the wastewater delivery system from the town of Bowenfels to the Lithgow STP.
The project involves the construction of two new pump stations, one at South Bowenfels and one at South Littleton, a new rising main to Endeavour Park and a new gravity main from Endeavour Park down Enfield Avenue, under Main Street, under Farmers Creek and into the Number 1 Pump Station at the Lithgow Sewerage Treatment Plant.
The scheme will see a reduction on the load on the existing systems in the Littleton area and the ability of the wastewater system to cope with additional demands from the Bowenfels residential development area.
The work is being undertaken on behalf of the council by contractors, Precision Equipment Co Ltd and the estimated value of the work being carried out at the present time is approximately $3.5 million.
“The work that has been undertaken to date by the contractors has been excellent” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Councillor Maree Statham.
“Restoration has been well carried out in difficult areas, particularly along the Great Western Highway and Council is very pleased with the standard of workmanship of the contractor,” said Mayor Statham.
“It is anticipated that work will be completed by July with the contractor installing the new gravity main in the Enfield Avenue/Curtin Place.”
“This project has been designed to ensure that infrastructure is up to a standard where it can cope with future likely demands”.
