As part of our ongoing sewer relining project, we’re currently refurbishing ageing wastewater pipes in Mt Hawthorn. This work is being undertaken by our authorised contractor, Interflow.
Sewer relining uses trenchless technology to clean access chambers and refurbish existing wastewater pipes. Trenchless technology is less invasive and requires fewer trenches resulting in less disruption to the community.
Where is this happening?
Sewer relining will be occurring in Mt Hawthorn and will be completed by 19 September 2019.
We will working on the wastewater pipe aong the following streets:
- Green St and Scarborough Beach Road, Brady St, Purslowe St, Egina St
- Glenelg Street, Federation Street, East Street, Britannia Road and Brentham Road
- Menzies Park, Egina St, Federation St, East St, and Sasse St.
See the Project maps tab for detailed overviews.
Why is this work taking place?
Relining wastewater pipes is an important process to protect our wastewater systems and the health of the community and environment. This work will reduce the likelihood of blockages, prevent corrosion and extend the life of this important infrastructure by at least 50 years.
Scarborough Beach Road night work
Night work will take place at on the corner of Scarborough Beach Road and Birrell Street from 29 July to 2 August 2019 between 7.00pm till 6.00am.

Work will generally be undertaken in one area for 6 days at a time as we move along the wastewater route.
How will this impact the community?
Residents may notice more activity in the area, noise from generators, vehicles and a temporary odour. We work closely with residents throughout the duration of the project to minimise the inconvenience to the local community wherever possible.
As part of this work, Interflow will also replace ageing property gas traps and access chamber covers. If access to your property is required the contractor, Interflow, will contact you directly to discuss and arrange entry.
