We recently completed an upgrade of the existing 100-year-old sewer that runs between Pasco Street, Williamstown and Scienceworks to ensure the Williamstown, Newport and Spotswood communities continue to receive a reliable sewerage service for years to come.

What the project involved

Inspections of the Williamstown main sewer revealed it was in poor condition and needed to be upgraded. The project improved the condition of the sewer by rehabilitating the existing sewer pipe and associated manholes.

Works involved:

  • relining the existing 4.4 kilometre Williamstown main sewer using trenchless technology
  • rehabilitating the associated manholes along the alignment
  • reinstating affected areas as close as possible to pre-existing condition

Works location
