  • Projects will cater for growth in the area 

The Liberal National Government has completed a $14.4 million suite of projects to ensure Busselton's wastewater system caters for growth in the area.

Water Minister Mia Davies said more than 10 kilometres of wastewater main was installed, along with construction of a new wastewater pump station.

"The Water Corporation project caters for growth in the area, including taking wastewater from the Provence Estate and Via Vasse residential developments," Ms Davies said.

"Work included construction of the wastewater main to connect the new wastewater pump station on Gigondas Street in the Provence Estate to the Busselton Wastewater Treatment Plant.

"Where feasible, the corporation used trenchless technology to install the wastewater main at major road crossings and front verges.

"I would like to thank the community, particularly those in Provence Estate and Via Vasse developments, for their patience while the essential work was carried out.

"This type of investment is essential to ensure the community has access to vital wastewater services now and into the future."
