Bodalla sewerage scheme on the move

Bodalla residents can expect to be connected to the Bodalla sewerage scheme by the end of the year.

Council engaged a contractor to construct a pressure sewerage system throughout the village and a new sewage treatment plant on Potato Point Road in early 2017.

After identifying some issues with the treatment plant earlier this year, Council is pleased to announce it is now is ready for operation.

Pump units have already been installed on properties to enable transportation of sewage to the plant and Council’s contractor Ted Wilson and Sons Pty Ltd (TWS) will begin connecting sewer pipes from households to the system over the next six weeks.

Council’s Infrastructure Services Director Warren Sharpe is pleased to see the project progressing.

“It is regrettable that the project is behind schedule however it was crucial that the plant was capable of treating the sewage to the level required for safe discharge to the environment,” he said.

“The new plant has been tested and is now ready receive flows of sewage. Property owners will be contacted directly to arrange the final connections.”

The pressure sewerage system replaces individual household on-site sewage management systems, such as septic tanks, and significantly reduces the risk of harm to the environment and public health.

This $10 million project is co-funded by the NSW Government’s Department of Primary Industries – Water, and the Department of Aboriginal Affairs.

It follows pressure sewerage schemes already installed at Rosedale and Guerilla Bay. Council is also progressing the Potato Point Sewerage Scheme, which will transport sewage to the new Bodalla plant.
