Kialla Sewerage Pump Station Gets an Upgrade
25 October 2017
A sewerage pump station does the very important job of aiding the movement of sewage on its way to the Wastewater Management Facility. It consists of a number of submersible pumps and a wet well that stores the sewage until sufficient volume is present to efficiently move the sewage on to the next pump station. It also provides breathing space for maintenance crews if there is an equipment breakdown.
It’s time for the Shepparton Sewerage Pump Station 44 at Kialla to get a make-over.
This station is located at the Gennari Road and Greybox Way corner. There has been quite an increase in new development in this area so a larger pump station is now needed.
The works will commence in late October and are expected to take 3 to 4 weeks to complete. Works will include installation of a vent stack, a new switch board, the decommissioning of the old switchboard, and the associated civil works.
During the construction period, local residents may experience some odour, noise and dust issues. However, GVW will take the necessary measures to minimise the impact on customers. We apologise for any inconvenience during this period.
GVW project coordinator Reddy Eda said, “Existing sewer connections will not be affected by these works and normal service is expected to be available throughout construction.”
GVW appreciates its customers understanding whilst it undertake these works. If you require any further information or need to contact us at any time please call our Customer Service Centre on 1800 454 500.
