Waste pipes get update
THE State Government will begin work to refurbish wastewater pipes in Victoria Park.
Water Minister Mia Davies said the $4.93 million project was part of an ongoing program of work to reline and refurbish wastewater pipes across the State.
“About four kilometres of wastewater pipe in Victoria Park will be refurbished over the coming year,” she said.
“The Water Corporation uses trenchless technology to reline wastewater pipes where possible. Trenchless technology avoids widespread excavation to access the wastewater pipes, which minimises disruption to the community and road users.
“The process involves inserting a liner inside an existing pipe via an access chamber, resulting in a replacement pipe with a smooth and continuous inner surface. This work will reduce the likelihood of blockages and overflows.”
