Sewer Relining Program

As a part of Council’s sewerage capital works program and its commitment to ensure the long term sustainability and efficiency of our sewerage infrastructure, Council is undertaking a sewer relining program across all sewerage schemes in the South Burnett.

The program will consist of three main phases. Phase 1 will involve the use of CCTV robotics to inspect all sewers within the schemes. This information will then be used to assess sewer serviceability and structural conditions. As part of the CCTV works, the sewer will also be cleaned to remove obstacles such as tree roots. The CCTV information will then allow Council to assess the more critical sections of the sewer network that will form part of the relining program.

Phase 2 of the sewer relining program will involve the installation of PVC liners into the existing sewer system to extend the life of existing sewer infrastructure. Relining will also involve the installation of PVC lines to the house connection junctions into the sewer.

Phase 3 will follow the relining process, and involve relining of the individual manholes to complete the project.

CCTV Works are planned to begin 7 August 2019, with further notifications to affected customers being provided when works are occurring in their area. Access to manholes on customer properties will be necessary, with contractors undertaking works whilst being assisted by Council staff.

CCTV works will begin in Wondai, and then carry on to Murgon, Blackbutt, Nanango and Kingaroy. Relining will begin approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the CCTV have completed in each town, with the program expected to be finalised throughout the entire South Burnett by March 2020.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this work may cause and thank you in advance for your patience.
