Sewer Inspection Program
Council has received quotations for the Sewer inspection program which is to be completed under the Central NSW Joint Organisation CCTV Contract. Works are expected to commence in April or May depending on contractor availability.
Sewer Flow Gauging
Monitoring works have been completed in Council’s sewerage network. This involves flow monitoring of 12 permanent sites and 17 temporary sites (for a 12 week period) throughout the trunk sewerage network. The 17 temporary sites have been removed and the data from all sites is currently under review prior to advising the sewer network model. This will assist Council in understanding location of inflow and infiltration problems and also provide data to recalibrate Council’s Sewer Model for further city planning.
Woodward Street Sewerage Pump Station
Works are underway on the decommissioning of the Woodward Street Sewerage Pump Station near the intersection of Woodward Street and Gardiner Road. This sewerage pump station has been made redundant due to the recent construction of the Shiralee Gravity Sewer System.
Sieben Drive Sewerage Pump Station and Rising Main Recommissioning
Council has recently complete a strategy into the future sewer servicing of North Orange. This report has recommended recommissioning an existing sewerage pump station at Sieben Drive near the intersection of Glendale Crescent. Council is in the process of undertaking a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Sieben Drive Sewerage Pump Station and rising main recommissioning. This is expected to be completed in April.
