Sydney Water will be investigating and repairing wastewater pipes, stormwater pipes and maintenance holes in the Shellharbour electorate. This work is part of Sydney Water’s SewerFix program to improve the wastewater and stormwater systems and protect public health and the environment.

Work hours will be 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday and 8 am to 1 pm on Saturdays. No work is planned on Sundays or public holidays. Local residents will be notified should out of hours work be required.

The work will involve:

  • inspecting and repairing maintenance holes;
  • inspecting pipes with closed circuit television (CCTV);
  • cleaning pipes;
  • installing structural liners in pipes;
  • rehabilitating sewer junctions.

This work will not affect water or wastewater services.

During the work local residents and businesses may notice an increase in noise, odour and vehicle movements, as well as temporary disruption to pedestrian and traffic movements.
