We are proposing to construct new wastewater infrastructure to help cater for the continued growth in the City of Swan.
This new infrastructure includes:
A new 18km wastewater pipeline
A new transfer pump station
Upgrades to an existing pump station
Once complete this new infrastructure will allow us to safely divert wastewater away from the existing Bullsbrook Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), which is currently at capacity, to one of our larger plants at Beenyup.
Where is this happening?
The new pipeline will run from the Water Corporation pump station on North Avenue in Bullsbrook to the pump station on Millhouse Road in Ellenbrook. The below map provides further details.
Why is this taking place?
As the community grows so does the amount of wastewater that we need to treat. This new pipeline will help us to ease pressure on the existing Bullsbrook WWTP and safely divert the increasing flows to Beenyup WWTP, one of the largest WWTP’s in the state.
When is this taking place?
As we are still in the planning stage of this project we do not have a confirmed start date. However, we anticipate work will likely begin in mid-2021 and will take around 18 months to complete.
How will this impact the community?
As with any construction activities there will be an increase in noise, dust and activity in the area. There will also be temporary impacts to roads, verges and pedestrian paths.
We follow a thorough reinstatement process to ensure all impacted areas are replaced like for like, where practically possible. We work closely with the City of Swan and residents to ensure all reinstatements are carried out to an acceptable and high standard.
