New sewage pump station - St Helens Point Road, Stieglitz

TasWater will construct a new sewage pump station (SPS) in St Helens Point Road, Stieglitz, to reduce the risk of sewage overflows into Georges Bay.

The existing SPS on the corner of Jetty Road and St Helens Point Road is in poor condition and needs to be upgraded to address environmental, pump capacity and emergency storage issues.

There is insufficient room for a new SPS to be built at the same location so TasWater has identified a new site approximately 200 metres to the east on Crown Land and next to the access to the Steiglitz sewage lagoons. The existing Jetty Road SPS will be decommissioned and demolished.

As part of the project, TasWater will also decommission the Stieglitz SPS (located further to the east along St Helens Point Road) and direct all flows through to the new Jetty Road SPS.

New gravity sewer lines will be constructed from the old Jetty Road and Steiglitz pump stations to the new SPS.

TasWater will do everything possible to minimise the impact of this project on nearby residents and screening will be an important component of the overall design.

UPDATE - April 1

Work has now been completed on the new rising mains that will carry sewage through to the new pump station. We thank residents for their patience and understanding while these works have been carried out.

Work will now commence on construction of the new pump station with works expected to continue for the next 12 to 15 weeks, weather permitting.

Geotechnical investigations of the area have determined that contractors will first need to sheet pile the construction area to mitigate groundwater conditions.

Sheet piling will commence on or around Wednesday, 6 April and will continue for at least five days.

Activities that may impact on nearby residents in terms of noise and ground vibration will include:

- Delivery of sheet piling to site

- Use of an excavator with piling attachments for pile driving

- Pile driving with side grip vibrator

- Pile driving with pile impact hammer

- Cutting of steel piles

- Welding of steel piles

- Installation of walers/struts.

TasWater apologises for any inconvenience these activities may cause.

The pit to be constructed as part of this process will be approximately six (6) metres in width, 18 metres in length and up to eight (8) metres in depth.

The construction area will be fenced off for safety reasons and residents are advised that anyone who enters the construction zone will be at significant risk of injury due to the depth of the excavation required.
