Net­work im­proves ef­fi­ciency

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE BUSINESS -

UNITYWATER is putting the fin­ish­ing touches to a new 15m deep sewage pump­ing sta­tion at Duck Holes Creek.

It’s the fi­nal stage of a six-year long up­grade of the greater Caloun­dra area’s sew­er­age net­work.

Unitywater Ex­ec­u­tive Man­ager Sus­tain­able In­fra­struc­ture So­lu­tions Scott Barnes said Unitywater had in­vested $30 mil­lion across five ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture projects to en­sure the area’s sew­er­age net­work will meet the needs of a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion.

The up­graded sew­er­age net­work ser­vices Caloun­dra, Golden Beach, Aura, Pel­i­can Wa­ters, Lit­tle Moun­tain and Bel­lvista.

As well as the new pump­ing sta­tion, works have in­cluded new sewer mains in cen­tral Caloun­dra, a new odour con­trol fa­cil­ity in Aroona and re­lin­ing the Kalana Road sew­er­age main.

Along Nick­lin Way, be­tween Caloun­dra and Aroona, a new sew­er­age pipe­line was built us­ing the long­est hor­i­zon­tal di­rec­tional drill of its kind in Aus­tralia.

All new in­fra­struc­ture is in ser­vice with the ex­cep­tion of Duck Holes Creek, ex­pected to be com­plete by the end of the year.
