Sewer works in your area starting February 2022

You might not notice a lot of the work we do because most of it is beneath your feet. Every day, we’re maintaining and upgrading the underground infrastructure that keeps water and sewage flowing. With some upcoming works in Bimble Street and Weeroona Street, Rye you might see us (or our contractor Active Services) around.

Here’s what to expect while we get the job done.

What we're doing

This project is to improve safety standards at the Bimble Street Pump Station. We will construct new bollards and covers around the existing underground pump station to protect vehicles from falling through and install new handrails around the existing underground pump station to protect workers accessing it.

See planned concept drawing attached. Bollards and handrails will be painted an environmental green.

When it's happening

We’re planning to start site exploratory excavation in February and start work in early March. It should take around four months to complete (depending on the weather).

You can expect us to work Monday to Friday between 7 am and 6 pm and on Saturday or public holidays between 9 am and 1 pm. On the odd occasion, we might need to work at other times for safety or technical reasons.

What might impact you

We’ll do our best to keep impacts to a minimum, however these are the kinds of things you might notice while we work:

  • More trucks on the streets around you.
  • Noise from machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse.

Don't miss these details

You shouldn't notice any change to your water or sewer services while we work.

When we’ve finished the job, we’ll leave things how we found them and make sure we return any areas we’ve impacted as close as possible to their original condition.

During the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) we have changed our engagement practice to ensure our crews can maintain physical distancing. Our COVID-19 update letter can be found below.
