Update – 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 the Murgon, Wondai and Nanango sewerage schemes.
Relining Solutions has been awarded the contract for the works being delivered as part of the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Council’s (WBBROC) Sewer Relining Program, a region-wide initiative to deliver cost savings to Council.
Phase 1 of the program, involving the use of CCTV robotics to inspect all sewers within the schemes, has been completed and CCTV data was used by Council to assess and identify critical sections of the sewer network that requires remedial works.
Phase 2 of the program involving the rehabilitation of the network will include the installation of plastic liners in the pipelines, grinding of deposits and roots, and clearing obstructions in the pipeline. Rehabilitation works are planned to start on Monday 24 February 2020. The proposed sequence of works is Murgon, Wondai followed by Nanango.
Further notifications to affected customers will be 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.
Completion of works is scheduled for mid to late May 2020 based on the contractor production rate for liner installation, weather permitting. The completion date will however be dependent on effectivity of grinding works and removal of blockages which can only be confirmed once works begin.
Council apologises for any inconvenience that this work may cause and thanks you in advance for your patience.
