Waste pipes get up­date

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

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.”
