Upcoming Water Corporation Works

Published on Tuesday, 28 February 2023 at 2:35:45 PM

The following information is being shared on behalf of the Water Corporation

What is happening?

Our authorised contractor Allpipe, will soon commence work to refurbish ageing wastewater pipes in Merredin. Sewer relining uses trenchless technology to clean and refurbish existing wastewater pipes. It reduces the likelihood of blockages and extends the life of this important infrastructure by at least 30 years.

Where is this happening?

We will be working across the town of Merredin. Please reference the map on the following page for an overview of the work areas. For more information, including aerial maps with street names, visit watercorporation.com.au/sewerrelining

When is this happening?

Work is scheduled to commence in mid March 2023 and completed by late July 2023. During this period, we will generally work from Monday to Saturday between 7.00 am and 5.00 pm. Night works may occasionally be required, and in this case we will notify impacted residents in advance.

How will this impact me?

Allpipe will be working in both verges and/or roads, and also in the boundary of private properties. If Allpipe requires access to your property, we will contact you directly to discuss the work and arrange entry.

Residents and businesses may notice more activity in the area, noise from generators and vehicles and temporary odour. Traffic management will be in place to direct vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians safely around the work area.

If you experience any odour in your bathroom during this work, flush your toilet and pour water down the floor drain. Where possible, please keep all toilet lids closed during this period. If water spurts from your toilet, please notify Courtney Hiller from Allpipe immediately. Allpipe will assess the issue, work with you to organise a cleanup and notify the Department of Health.

We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your cooperation while this important work takes place.
