Funding for Bodalla Sewerage Scheme announced


Member for Bega Andrew Constance has today announced the NSW Government will provide $713,090 in funding for the Bodalla Sewerage Scheme.

Mr Constance said the funding will allow Eurobodalla Shire Council to begin construction of a new sewage treatment plant for the communities of Bodalla and Potato Point.

“We are getting on with the job of getting our local communities hooked to modern waste water facility that will serve our growing needs

“The existing on-site sewerage systems are not reliable and do not perform well, particularly during rainy periods,” Mr Constance said.

“This new sewerage scheme will provide a modern sewerage system to ensure a reliable sewerage service for the residents of Bodalla and Potato Point, protect public health and achieve better environmental outcomes, all at the same time.”

Mr Constance said today’s funding announcement was in addition to $1.2 million provided under the Aboriginal Communities Development Program.

The NSW Government has also provided $3.22 million under the Restart NSW – Regional Water and Wastewater Backlog Program for the Potato Point Sewerage Scheme.

Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes welcomed the news, saying the funding will provide ongoing benefits for the Bodalla and Potato Point communities.

“We’ve already completed the preparatory work for this exciting project and we’re looking forward to getting onsite works for the new sewage treatment plant underway next month,” said Mayor Innes.

“Council is grateful to Mr Constance for his ongoing support of important infrastructure projects in the Eurobodalla Shire.”

“The NSW Government is committed to partnering with local councils to deliver reliable, affordable and sustainable water supplies and sewerage systems to NSW communities through the long-standing Country Towns Program and more recently through Restart NSW,” Mr Constance said.
