Liverpool Plains Council owns and maintains over 57 kilometres of sewer mains and reticulation, two treatment plans and nine pumping stations to service the towns within the local government area. Maintenance includes cleaning and repairing all current pipes, pump stations and manholes as well as upgrading (relining) or replacing infrastructure as necessary.
Wastewater from a household goes into the gravity sewer system and flows to the nearest pumping station. The pumping station then pumps the wastewater to the Sewerage Treatment Facilities.
There is an increasing public awareness of the natural values of waterways and our environment which should not be contaminated by human activities. As such, any new or existing developments need to be reviewed to take into account the ongoing health of our waterways and Shire's environment.
Contact Council for more information on the location of the sewer infrastructure in your town.
