Annual maintenance program of regions sewer system to ensure structural integrity of the sewers. These works not only extend the life of the assets, but can also result in a substantial reduction in demand to the sewage treatment facilities and overall energy reduction, especially during the wet season or rain events.

Works will involve the insertion of a liner into the existing sewer pipeline, through existing manholes. Little or no excavation works are required and there should be no disruption to your water and wastewater services. Residents may however notice an increase in noise, lighting, possible odour and vehicle movements in the area during the works.

It is recommended that lids on your toilets remain closed while these works are being undertaken. This will help prevent any potential splashback during the pressure cleaning part of the relining process.

Working hours are typically:

  • Monday to Friday 7.00am to 6.00pm
  • Saturday 7.00am to 4.00pm
