Drummond Street sewage pump station upgrade, Perth

Work will commence shortly on an upgrade of the Drummond Street Sewage Pump Station (SPS) at Perth,

A contract for the project has been awarded to Paul Zanetto Pty Ltd with work to commence after Easter 2016. It will continue for approximately three to four weeks, weather permitting.

The upgrade will help minimise the risk of sewage overflows impacting on local residents and the environment and will also help ensure the pump station meets TasWater standards in relation to workplace health and safety.

As part of the upgrade, TasWater will be replacing the existing pump, constructing a hardstand (parking) area around the pump station and installing high visibility, removeable bollards.

We will also be constructing a new overflow pipe from the existing manhole outside 1/60A and 2/60A Drummond Street to a new sewer manhole on the intersection of Drummond Street and Drummond Crescent.It will then cross Drummond Crescent and connect with a new sewer manhole on the other side of the road.

Construction of the overflow pipe will require open trenching long a short section of the Drummond Street nature strio and across Drummond Crescent. While every effort will be made to minimise the impact of these works on members of the public, some residents may experience minor traffic delays and short-term access interruptions. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

All areas disturbed during the excavation process will be fully reinstated.

This project is in line with TasWater's commitment to upgrade water and sewerage infrastructure across the state.
