Alstonville Sewer Main works

Alstonville's growth calls for new infrastructure.

Council has started works to upgrade the Alstonville Gravity Sewer which involves upsizing the existing trunk gravity sewer main that transports all of Alstonville’s sewage to the Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant. 
The existing main was built back in the 70s and is now undersized for the growing town. Upsizing the line will increase the emergency storage capacity of the system, minimise inflow and infiltration from ground water and improve the overall efficiency of the system.

Location
The works will be from Alstonville Treatment Plant to Geoff Watt Oval (along the stormwater easement and across Tanamera Dr)

Pump station upgrade set to improve efficiency for Ballina

The Swift Street Sewer Pump station Upgrade involves refurbishing the existing wet well and dry well to maximise the life of the asset. It includes removing replacing the old pumps with more efficient new pumps and reconfiguring the pipework to suit an improved operational layout. 

Behind the scenes Council proactively undertakes a program of capital works to upgrade civil infrastructure, such as pump stations, to ensure continuous operation and peace of mind for residents. Equipment age and population growth within our shire are key drivers for the upgrade of the Swift Street pump station.
