Riverside SPS Rationalisation


TasWater will be undertaking significant improvements to the sewerage infrastructure at Riverside in coming months as part of the Riverside Sewage Pumping Station (SPS) Rationalisation Program.

This project will see the sewage pumping stations in Fairway Crescent, Barwing Crescent and Cleghorn Crescent decomissioned and a new, larger pumping station built next to the existing SPS in Cleghorn Avenue.

The project is being undertaken at a cost of approximately $900,000 and will result in a number of improvements for TasWater, the community and the environment.

Works will commence in mid-April and will involve the construction of new gravity mains from the Fairway Crescent and Barwing Crescent pumping stations to the new Cleghorn Avenue pumping station.

The majority of these works will be undertaken on private property or road reserve and the necessary arrangements have already been made with the private landholder concerned and with West Tamar Council.

TasWater will liaise directly with anyone else who may be impacted during the construction process.

Excavation work is expected to be completed in mid-May with the entire project scheduled for completion by the end of June. The existing pumping stations will be kept in operation until the new Cleghorn SPS has been fully comissioned, ensuring services are maintained throughout the project.
