Project goal:

Upgrading wastewater infrastructure in Manning to improve the disposal of wastewater in the City of South Perth.

Status:

In Planning

Delivery Date:

Spring 2021

What is happening?

We are upgrading the existing Jarman Avenue Pump Station in Manning to improve the disposal of wastewater in the City of South Perth.
The work includes:

  • Construction of a below ground pump station and storage tank
  • Construction of a short section of underground wastewater pipeline to connect the upgraded pump station to existing wastewater infrastructure
  • Decommissioning of the existing pump station and wet well

Where is this happening?

Work will take place at the existing Jarman Avenue Pump Station and the northern reserve, adjacent to Manning Primary School’s oval. Please see map below

Why is this taking place?

To ensure we can securely dispose of wastewater for the growing Manning community, we need to increase the capacity of our existing pump station. 

When is this taking place?

Our current planning anticipates construction to start in spring 2021. This is subject to change as we work with the community and government agencies through the approval process.

How will this impact the community?

As with any construction activities you may notice an increase in activity, truck movements and noise while we build the new pump station and pipeline. 

We are committed to minimising the impact on the community and the environment as much as possible while we upgrade the existing pump station.

Please be assured that where possible any affected areas will be restored to their condition before the work. We are working with our environmental team and the City of South Perth to restore the vegetation impacted by our work.
