About the new pump station
The new facility will:
The site we have chosen for the new pump station is on Foster Street in Sale, opposite the Police Station.
There are several reasons why we chose this site:
The landscape design
We have worked closely with Wellington Shire Council, the community of Sale, and a landscape architect to create a facade for the new sewer pump station that will complement the amenity of the area. We have also been conscious of retaining and enhancing the western entrance to Sale.
The landscape design connects to the significant development works that are underway at the Port of Sale precinct, and features a curved timber fence inspired by the historic port and the local timber industry.
The planting scheme incorporates native evergreen trees, and indigenous plants laid out in organic shapes. Additional planting is also planned to assist with screening on the eastern and southern boundaries of the site.
Once the new pump station is operating, the unsightly old sewer pump station on Park Street will be removed, which will further improve views from the Port of Sale precinct.
