Our authorised contractor, Civcon, will soon commence work to upgrade wastewater services in the City of Swan. The work includes 2.4km of 200mm, 250mm nominal diameter wastewater pressure main and 375mm gravity sewer.
Where is this happening?
Please refer to the map below for location of works
Why is this taking place?
We are upgrading Ellenbrook’s wastewater system to improve wastewater services in the City of Swan and cater for the growing population.
When is this happening?
Work is expected to begin in September 2019 and is estimated to be completed by December 2019. The majority of work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm as approved by your local council. Some night work may be required – we will provide notification once this is confirmed.
How will this impact the community?
Nearby residents will notice more noise and activity along the pipeline with low-level vibrations and dust present. Residents will be informed about any impacts to their properties during the work, including driveways or paving. Please be assured that any affected areas will be reinstated as close as possible to their condition prior to the work. If any trees, shrubs, or lawn needs to be removed, they will be replaced and the area restored.
The majority of work will take place in the verge and road reserves. In order to safely conduct this work, there will be traffic management in place during construction to direct road users and pedestrians safely around the work. A one lane road closure will be in place to enable excavations and pipe installation as the project progresses.
As part of this work, some vegetation is required to be cleared to allow sufficient access to lay the pipe. We will work with the City of Swan to replace the trees and revegetate after construction work is complete.
