- Construction starts late August on $1.26 m contract
- Connecting 98 residential lots to central wastewater system by February 2013
Water Minister Bill Marmion today announced the Kwinana-Calista area would be provided $1.26 Million of vital wastewater services as part of the State Government’s Infill Sewerage Program.
Mr. Marmion said 98 residential lots bounded by Edmund, Wellard, Rhodes and Isaac streets would benefit from connection to the Water Corporation’s central system.
“Infill sewerage is a system of pipes that takes wastewater away from residential properties for safe and healthy processing and disposal.” Mr. Marmion said.
“When the Infill Sewerage Program is complete, about 100,000 households in Western Australia will have access to the central wastewater system, reducing leach drain run-off to the environment.”
The Minister said residents in the infill area would soon receive notification from the Water Corporation of the start of the works.
“Residents were contacted in August last year and receive further notification and information packs before any roadway detours or excavation begins near their properties.” Mr. Marmion said.
The Kwinana-Calista infill sewerage program is administered by the Water Corporation and funded by the State Government’s $100 Million Infill Sewerage Program.
