$600,000 capital works program
Sewers will be relined in Atherton and closed-circuit television will be used to inspect sewer mains in Yungaburra as part of the 10-year inspection and renewal program.
This video of sewer cleaning and relining shows course aggregate where fine materials in the cement have washed away. These rough surfaces cause items to become stuck and create blockages, which compromises the structural integrity of the sewer. The after part shows the cleaned and relined pipes. This extends the life of the sewer, reducing the demand and improving energy efficiency, especially during periods of wet weather.
$355,000 capital works projects
Various upgrades and replacements will be conducted on the sewerage treatment plants across the region including structural components, pumps, switchboards and earthworks.
