  • Status: Open

As part of Council’s ongoing service improvement program scheduled works to upgrade Sewer Pump Station Wet Well and Valve Pit Lids will be taking place at various locations across the region. The sewer pump stations are located in Babinda, Edmonton, Cairns City, Brinsmead, Freshwater and Redlynch.

The upgrading of the wet well and valve pit lids will reduce the workplace health and safety risks identified at these sites. These improvements will reduce the risk of a fall, the proposed project replacing current lids with a modern design incorporating inbuilt fall prevention devices such as grates, rails and gates. The project will also reduce the lid lift weight to below 20kgs which will reduce the risk of strain injuries.

The works are scheduled to commence in mid December and are expected to be completed by late June 2018, subject to favourable weather conditions.

As a result, nearby residents may experience minor disruptions including traffic movements, noise and dust disturbances during the works period.  The work should have no direct impact on sewerage services.
