Huonville Main St Sewage Pump Station upgrade

Providing a reliable and safe sewerage service to Huonville

Updated November 2017

Background

TasWater is currently upgrading Huonville’s Main St sewage pump station (SPS) and rising main to the Ranelagh Sewage Treatment Plant. The Huonville Main Road SPS is located at the rear of 13-17 Main St, Huonville, in a known floodplain. It was originally built in the 1960s and had upgrades in the late 1980s and again in 2003. The pump station transfers all flows from Huonville and Franklin to the Ranelagh STP, via a rising main that runs across private property, parallel to Wilmot Road, about 30 metres behind the shops and properties. Both the SPS and rising main have a long history of non-compliance and complaints.

After considering the options and consulting with affected residents, TasWater has decided to build a new SPS as well as a new rising main along Main Street and Wilmot Road. Both the existing SPS and rising main will then be removed from service.

Project benefits

The upgrade is an important project to help minimise the risk of sewage overflows, and reduce odour from the SPS. It will also improve system reliability and operational safety and will help cater for growth in Huonville over the next 30 years.

Community impact during works

TasWater has started work on the new SPS and expects to begin work on the new rising main in late November 2017. We aim to the have the works completed by March 2018. Work will largely occur between the hours of 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday and on the occasional Saturday as required. Traffic management will be in place when required and we will endeavour to minimise the impact of this project on members of the public, people attending Huonville High School and other key stakeholders.

While building the new SPS, we will work with local residents and shopowners to minimise disruption.

Key dates

We will aim to meet the following key dates for the project:

Jan 2018 Pump Station completion

March 2018 Rising Main completion

March 2018 Replace existing inlet manhole (adjacent arcade)

March 2018 Commission new pump station and rising main

April 2018 Decommission redundant assets
