Water Corporation will soon begin work to refurbish wastewater pipes in Bayswater and Maylands to extend the life of this important infrastructure by at least 50 years.

 

Water Corporation General Manager Assets Delivery, Mark Leathersich, said the $2.6 million project formed part of an ongoing program to reline and refurbish wastewater pipes across the State.

 

“Around 2.3 kilometres of wastewater pipe along Neville, Leake and King William streets in Bayswater and Woodhouse Road in Maylands will be refurbished over the next three months,’’ Mr Leathersich said.

 

Water Corporation uses trenchless technology to reline wastewater pipes where possible. This technology avoided the need for extensive excavation to access the wastewater pipes, which kept disruption to the community and road users to a minimum.

 

"Residents may notice an increase in activity along the pipeline route, however traffic management will be in place at all times and disruption will be kept to a minimum,’’ Mr Leathersich said.

 

“I want to thank the residents in advance for their patience while we carry out this work.’’

 

Water Corporation will work closely with local residents and provide notification prior to the start of work.
