What's happening? 

The construction of a new sewerage pump station (SPS) at the end of Moolabin Crescent, Yeerongpilly is now complete with the exception of the energisation of the electrical switchboard. Once the electrical switchboard is connected, the temporary fencing around the area will be removed.

Odour management

Due to the sewer system current flows and the SPS proximity to residential properties a vent was not required at this location.

Independent odour modelling was carried out during the final design to ensure the pump station will comply with the environmental regulations.


As part of the Urban Utilities maintenance program, this SPS will have scheduled maintenance activities carried out from time to time as required and access will occur from an all-weather turf track off Moolabin Crescent.

The Allawah Street area is located north of Moolabin Creek and consists of residential zoned properties. The sewerage catchment upstream of the Allawah Street area services both industrial buildings and residential properties. The Allawah Street area is reported to have been subject to uncontrolled wet weather sewage overflows (WWSOs) since 1987.

To assist in mitigating the WWSOs in the Allawah Street catchment, both upstream and downstream isolations of the residential catchment have been put in place.

The upstream flows have been redirected into another part of the sewer network. The downstream isolation will be achieved by the new all-weather pump station servicing only the Allawah Street / Moolabin Crescent catchment.

The Brisbane City Council Development Approval was obtained November 2021.
