Construction has commenced on the Telegraph Point, Comboyne and Long Flat sewerage schemes.
In August 2018, Council awarded Ledonne Constructions the Contract to construct the village sewerage schemes in Comboyne, Long Flat and Telegraph Point.
All three communities will benefit from the construction of new sewerage treatment plants and full collection systems which will include a gravity sewer at Long Flat and Comboyne. A pressure sewer system will be installed at Telegraph Point which will also be constructed under the Contract.
Sewage waste disposal within the 3 villages is currently through on-site sewerage management systems, and the new fully reticulated sewerage network will provide a more efficient disposal method, and importantly protect the environment and health of the local community.
Providing the systems in the 3 villages is a total investment of more than $29 million, which is being funded by Council and includes a NSW State Government contribution of almost $6 million under the Restart NSW Water Security for Regions program.
Works are currently underway on all three schemes and subject to favourable weather, completion at each location is anticipated to be:-
Telegraph Point - Completion during March 2020
Comboyne - Completion during May 2020
Long Flat - Completion during July 2020
Council will provide advice to all landowners when the schemes have been completed (including reticulation and treatment works) with advice when connection can commence and how this is to be done.
As part of the Long Flat Sewerage Scheme works, construction of a new Waste Water Pump Station is underway at the rear of the Long Flat public toilets.
Some items within the Long Flat Playground have been temporarily removed where fall zone standards could not be maintained during the construction period.
Council apologises for any inconvenience caused and appreciates the community’s patience whilst these important infrastructure works take place.
