What is happening?
Sewer relining is an ongoing program to renew aging wastewater pipes. The work is carried out by our authorised contractor, Interflow, to ensure our central wastewater system continues to be safe and reliable.
Where possible, pipes are relined using trenchless technology. This means we won’t need to dig anything up to replace the pipes, which will help minimise the impact on the local community. Check out the tab ‘How does it work’ for more information.

Why is this work taking place?
Relining old wastewater pipes is important to protect the local wastewater systems and the health of the community and environment and will extend the life of this important infrastructure by at least 50 years.
When is this happening?
This is an ongoing project. Sewer relining is an ongoing project that started over 10 years ago to renew ageing wastewater pipes across the State.
Refer to the second tab above for potential impacts to nearby residents.
How will this impact the community?
There may be more activity in the area, noise from generators and vehicles and temporary odour. Work will be approved in advance by your local government authority.
Where necessary, traffic management will be in place to direct people safely around the work area. We’ll usually be in one area for no more than 6 days at a time as we progress work along the wastewater route.
Interflow may need to access your property and will contact you directly to discuss and arrange entry. They’ll only require access to your back or front yard and will not need to enter your home.
If you experience any odour in your bathroom, flush your toilet and pour water down the floor drain. Where possible, please close all toilet covers during this period.
If wastewater does overflow out of your toilet, notify Steve Thompson from Interflow on 0407 157 056 immediately. Interflow will assess the issue and notify the Department of Health.
