Site cleared for new sewer pump station in Sale
Gippsland Water has completed demolition of a derelict building near the Port of Sale to make way for a major new piece of infrastructure.
The $11.4M outfall sewer pump station will be built on Foster Street, opposite the Police Station, on the site of the old car yard. Construction is expected to be complete by April 2021.
Gippsland Water engaged with the community and a landscape architect to develop a planting and screening solution for the new pump station that will complement the amenity of the local area.
Gippsland Water’s General Manager Customer and Community Paul Clark said that the new pump station will be a major improvement to Sale’s sewer network.
"This project will cater for population growth in Sale, Wurruk, and Fulham for the next 50 years. It will also allow us to demolish the existing outfall sewer pump station on Park Street.
"The new pump station will feature industry-standard odour mitigation technology and reduce the likelihood of spills into Flooding Creek.
"We’re proud to support growth and liveability in our region by investing in projects that improve the capacity of our network and protect the environment," he said.
The contract to complete detailed engineering designs for the project was awarded to WSP and design work is underway.
