You can rely on us to keep things flowing, and from time-to-time we need to upgrade your local wastewater network.
We have constructed two new sewerage pump stations and associated pipelines in St Helens Road and Concorde Street in Mitchelton.
This sewer infrastructure will help to manage wet weather overflows in the area and reduce environmental impacts.
The grit chamber is designed to catch debris in the sewage flow, such as stones, broken glass and wet wipes. The debris will be removed during regular planned maintenance, to prevent damage to the pumps and other equipment. This will be performed every six months, during normal business hours, and will take approximately two hours.
The treatment facility, which filters odours from the pump station, will be serviced quarterly.
During planning, in-depth odour modelling was carried out at each location to inform the final design and ensure the pump station complies with environmental regulations. The pump stations will incorporate a three-stage treatment facility that filters odours. The 12.5m vent pole at Concorde Street will ensure any remnant odours are released well above houses.
