Painted Hills Sewer Upgrade
To improve the reliability of our sewer network in Doreen, we’re upgrading the sewer pump station and sewer main at Painted Hills Road.
We're upgrading the sewer pump station and sewer main at Painted Hills Road, Doreen.
- A new pump station will be constructed at the existing pump site, near the intersection of Painted Hills Road and Kyarra Drive.
- A one-kilometre pipeline will be constructed along Painted Hills Road, from the pump station site to the Overland Drive roundabout where it continues under Laurimar Creek to Braford Drive and connects to an existing sewer. To limit the impact of our work on vegetation and the waterway, the pipeline will be constructed using directional drilling.
In addition, we will also construct new maintenance holes along the alignment to enable our maintenance staff to access the sewer, when required.
Once we’ve completed the new sewer pipeline and pump station, we’ll decommission the existing ones.
We have appointed Jaydo Construction as our Project Partners. They plan to be onsite to start work in July 2021 and expect to take 12 months to complete this upgrade project.
What to expect
Our normal working hours are 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday and limited low impact work on Saturdays.
Sections of the shared path within the Laurimar Creek Reserve may be closed to pedestrians and cyclists from time to time.
We don’t expect there’ll be any interruption to your services during these works.
