We’re constructing a new wet weather sewerage pump station at Hawthorne Park, Hawthorne.

This new sewer infrastructure will help to manage wet weather overflows in the area and reduce environmental impacts.

The project is expected to be completed late 2021, weather and site conditions permitting.

Our principal contractor, Fulton Hogan Utilities, is undertaking the work.

What’s Happening? 

This morning the construction fencing was removed around the new Hawthorne Park Wet Weather Pump Station and most of the area is open to the public.

There is a small section of fencing around newly laid turf and will be removed in Jan 2022.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during the recent essential work, which will help ensure the reliability and sustainability of the sewerage services in your area.

During heavy rain, local sewer pipes become inundated with stormwater, resulting in overflows.  Following investigations, it was identified that a new pump station was required to reduce wet weather overflows in the Hawthorne area.

The new wet weather pump station will operate during wet weather events only to divert flows from the local sewer network to the larger trunk sewer on Riding Road. The park location lets the new pump station to be built below-ground so it can connect to the new gravity sewer main that will be built from Lindsay Street to Hawthorne Park.

To keep the leafy, open and accessible park space, the new pump station will be built at the edge of Hawthorne Park, near the existing toilet facility.
