Minister for Lands and Water, Niall Blair, today announced the completion of the $3.7 Million upgrade of Coogee’s wastewater system to secure the system for the next 50 years.

Mr. Blair was joined by Member for Coogee Bruce Notley-Smith to inspect the finished upgrade.

“The New South Wales (NSW) Government is committed to ensuring that the local community continues to have a secure and safe wastewater system for years to come.” Mr. Blair said.

 

“The structural rehabilitation work carried out on 340 metres of wastewater pipes will help prevent the system from possible failures and underpins a strong and viable wider network.”

Member for Coogee Bruce Notley-Smith said that the upgrade project will be of great benefit right across the local community.

“This critical work will further secure the Coogee wastewater system and ensure that wastewater does not back up into people’s homes or businesses.” Mr. Notley-Smith said.

“I’m proud to have delivered for the Coogee community and will continue to ensure that we have the reliable infrastructure we need for the future.”

Almost 700 tonnes of debris and silt has also been removed from wastewater pipes, which will help to minimise blockages in the pipes and prevent wastewater overflows in the area.

Work commenced in February 2015 and is part of the NSW Government’s investment of $250 Million to upgrade wastewater infrastructure in 2015-16.
